A family, a journey, a revolution
Looks like there’s new piece of artwork. I like the reference to family farm. Because, we’ll it is! We are first and foremost farmers – living off our little plot of land. Sure, we have a few odd jobs here and there but our main job in life is plant, raised and grow food not only for our family but for income.

New Face on Farming
Intensive urban agriculture can provide from one to three pounds of produce per square foot per year. Each person consumes approximately 300 pounds of fruits and vegetables per year. That means a space of 10’x10’ to 20’x20’ (100-300 square feet of growing space, not counting paths) would be needed to grow ALL of the fruits and vegetables for each person.
Urban backyard, balconies and empty lots are the new farming frontier. Forget the back forty! Small scale mini farms are the 21st century family farm. Growing food is growing a secure future.
Urban aggies are the future farmers of the American landscape.
