Saving Local Farms


From my Dallas hotel room this morning I was happy to see in the online version of my local newspaper that New Milford, CT is pushing to save more local farms. The top focus is to preserve 1,000 acres of farmland which includes 5 family farms. Over the past year I've seen an increasing number of articles about area towns doing the same and hopefully this trend will continue. It's good not only for farmers, it's also good for the land, the local economy, the local history; and, of course, it's good for our bellys!
