More Than a Little Girl's Dream

On the face of it the report below is a cute human interest story about a suburban 8 year old girl's dream of someday becoming a farmer. It's certainly that, but it also involves 'a second generation farm, going on a third.' Now that interested me. I grew up on a farm an always imagined that once a generation left farming behind, that was it for them. I've learned that's certainly not the case, with plenty of people at farmer's markets who had no recent ancestors on the farm selling their products. While I'm not certain dairy is the best industry to be in, I like hearing about people making a go of it setting a new family farm tradition.
