Pushing a boulder uphill

These California farmers are giving up their land and quitting farming. Most of the reasons they cite for getting out of farming could be things we are saying next year or the year after, or the year after that.

Think hard about your food and your sources, and what it takes to support them. Farming is hard on mind and body, and land is expensive, and organic is expensive, and farmers too need health care and homes and a bit of time to relax. If you eat, you should consider these costs.
