USDA to start program to support local and organic farming
from The New York Times
The United States Department of Agriculture plans to announce that it will spend $52 million to support local and regional food systems like farmers’ markets and food hubs and to spur research on organic farming. The local food movement has been one of the fastest growing segments of the business, as consumers seek to know more about where, how and by whom their food is grown.
