Check out this article: The New Face of Farming, by Donna Gleisner, in Snohomish CD's, The Nexus

I have to share this lovely article with you about today's farmers and how they are making a go of it in creative ways. I just love Donna's opening paragraph:

"Forget everything you thought you knew about what a typical farmer is like. The stereotype is no longer accurate. Today's farmer can come from any background; be any age, any nationality, any income level. He or she could look like an office manager, your mother, a tattoo artist and anybody in between."

The Coalition

Cascade Harvest Coalition is dedicated to re-localizing the food system in Washington by connecting consumers more directly with producers.

We help farmers by connecting them with the tools and resources they need to be more sustainable and provide timely information to consumers so they can make informed food buying decisions.
