Just got this on the comfood list - http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/15/opinion/can-you-earn-a-living-at-farming.html?_r=1

I'm glad to see Joel Salatin's response. Thought this might be good food for thought for others here. How would you respond to these arguments? I admit I didn't read hte original article, I thought it would drag me down, and I"ve likely heard these limiting beliefs before. I believe anything is possible.

THanks!

i agree with the ideas presented in the original article. the title is a bit much but the writing makes some important points that i think need to be addressed.
