Orion--not in the sky but on paper

One of my goals: an article in Orion!

With a grandfather who was a farmer, an eco-biologist environmentalist daughter and living in the "real" America, rural dairy farm land, I've been struggling with my City and Country Mouse persona.

But I've been talking to the farmers hereabouts for about six or more months and have pulled in some for a coffee and beer chat to mull over our region's future.

Even Ray up Cemetary Room has agreed to talk.

Where once we had more than 4,000 dairies, we now have just 101 actively producing and distributing their products.

Can we save these remaining producers?
