Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Stand up for rural America while you still can
Grist - 6/17/2009.
By Dave Murphy – The assault on rural America continues unabated. For the past six months dairy farmers across the country have suffered a historic drop in milk prices while operating costs remain high. Since December 2008, the price that farmers are paid for the milk they produce has plunged over 50 percent, the largest single drop since the Great Depression.

"This has been a dream of mine," said Michial Russell, the farm manager and a volunteer at the food pantry. "One of our goals is to get healthy food back into the hands of people who don't have access to it.

Susanne Ward and Patrick Reilley opened up Rock City Books & Coffee – a cafe, used bookstore and coffee shop – at about the same time. Locals were skeptical that lattes and espressos would take hold here, and gave them six months. Within two years, the business had to move to a larger space.
