This hip approach to contemporary small-scale agriculture offers a mix of practical information, political advocacy, and whimsical diversion. The Winter 2015 issue celebrates the working donkey, dissects farmer loyalty to particular brands of tractors (Kubota, New Holland, or John Deere?), and explores an innovative new concrete-framed farmhouse in Australia. Also here: an investigation into a complex array of food regulatory challenges, a look at the burgeoning marijuana farming business, and a survey of a range of salt farms around the US.
