    Yes I am in 7b and yes, there are farmer's markets all over where I live in North Carolina - it is a farming state. Thank you for the tip on Joel Salatin - I appreciate it and will look into it! I have seen that documentary -- that is in California, *very* different than here in North...

    What’s the difference between “Regenarative Farming” and traditional “Mixed Farming”?

I have some contacts with NC State's small farm unit and a farmer who leased the land I bought and farmed on it for the past four years, but I have a lot to learn, I...
