Overview

Want to grow tomatoes? Raise trout? Show your calf at the county fair? Build a greenhouse? In the twenty-first century, fewer North Americans farm for a living-but plenty of people are still interested in farming. The number of farmers' markets across the country has doubled-and then some-since 1994. The more urban and suburban we become, the more farm life seems to fascinate us. As people have moved away from farms and into hightech careers, there often remains the urge to dig in the dirt, raise livestock, and participate in the ancient vocation that produced the first civilizations at the dawn of history. Plenty of rural kids are still growing up on farms across North America. But you don't have to grow up on a farm to experience farm living!
