Government Attacks Small Family Farm in Schenectady County New York 

Unexpected Dangers of Farming
by FUSSYlittleBlog

Remember how I said I wanted to get more involved with local farms this year? Well, I guess it pays to be careful with your wishes.

A few weeks ago I met Joshua Rockwood for the first time at Bella Napoli in Latham. He’s the owner of West Wind Acres, a small but growing farm on the edge of Schenectady County in the town of West Charlton. Josh didn’t grow up a farmer. He has a background in construction, but he has gotten into farming for all the right reasons.

It’s a long story, and you can read the whole thing on his blog.

    That way they can participate in the comment thread too. Cheers.
