Hogs, Quahogs, and the 07 Farm Bill


“When we think of farming in Rhode Island, we picture Holsteins grazing
along stone walls, fields ripe with sweet corn, farm stands overflowing
with tomatoes. But there are other farms that don’t come to mind,
because they are underwater. Across America, the Department of
Agriculture is now holding public forums to obtain information for the
development of the 2007 Farm Bill. In America’s heartland, this piece of
federal legislation is as familiar as quahogs are in Rhode Island.”
