So how will the farm community respond to this ? Will more real or main stream farmers change their practices or will they just stay the course ?
As much as ag and it's representatives want to proclaim from the pulpit that agriculture is all things environmental it is true that many things in or done by ag are not . Things can be done but at what price ? Farmers will all to often have their hand out asking who is going to pay them for their service to society . Should society pay or should it be an expected part of being an environmental service and being environmentally concious ?

Depends on your location and target market. It sounds like you may want to pursue organic. If you would like to feed the general population given it's exponential growth "bigger" "factory" is still the buzz words that are generally accepted. Who wants to lose money feeding the world?

One Monarch so far this year.
Big back yard, adding lots of milkweed in the spring.
Going to put some beauty back into this frenzy we've created.
