I thought I'd post the links to some recent stories about farming, agriculture, and animals in the news:
Here is a story on Polyface Farm's entree into Freedom Ranger broilers, which is the variety we're currently raising at Ecotone.
Here is a NYT editorial from early this week about how to fund small businesses in the recession.
Here is a Freakonomics blog post on the role of "localvore" economics and food safety.
Here is a NPR Marketplace story on Niman Ranch and the economics of sustainable farming.
Here is an Opinionator blog post by Vanderbilt philosophy professor Kelly Oliver on animals and pets.
