There has been a movement afoot in recent years to make connections between what we eat, how we live and, frankly, how we can avoid trashing the planet. Modern Farmer exists for people who want to be a part of that movement -- it is for window herb growers, career farmers, people who have chickens, people who want to have chickens and anyone who wants to know more about how food reaches their plate.
Content on the website as of now is varied, a mix of practical, small-scale farming advice (there are how-to's on felling a tree, and turning your backyard into a farm) and larger trend stories. There's a whole section of the website dedicated to chickens. There's even a story titled "Poop, It's Back." There are also lots of interesting stories on food policy, something that sorely needs more focus in the media.
We look forward to what Modern Farmer has to offer going forward.
