On Sunday, the New York Times ran a column by Nicholas Kristof that featured two poultry farmers that our staff has gotten to know well, Mike Weaver and Eric Hedrick. Both farmers appear in a documentary about the poultry industry RAFI is producing this year, Under Contract.
The Eastern Triangle Farm Tour is happening this weekend! The event runs from 1 to 5 PM on Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th. Our friends at Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) have been instrumental in promoting the local farms of the Triangle through these tours over the past 10 years. We are happy to add that several of the farms on the tour this weekend are recipients of an Agricultural Reinvestment Fund grant from our organization.
