I was on the road the other day when an idea came to mind for a post. Seeing as I was not at my computer, I grabbed my camera, pulled over at a rest stop, and put my thoughts on camera. Enjoy!

What are your thoughts on Urban areas encroaching on farm and ranch land?

What reasons do farmers and ranchers sell their land to developers? What can be done to prevent this?

Are organic, natural, or grass-fed options viable choices for these producers?

Do consumers realize the connection to Agriculture the land once had they are now living on?

Have you or someone you known been affected by urban sprawl? Did land competition, encroaching regulations/codes, increasing input costs, or decreasing output return play a factor in the decision to end the business?
