MISSOURI PASTURE LAND
We're blessed with abundant
fertile pasture lands
here in eastern Missouri.
In fact, according to current USDA
Agriculture Statistic Services,
Missouri ranks #2 in the U.S.
for the number of small farms.
Not mega-farms under corporate control,
but small family farms,
100,000 in all
(average size 287-acres).
Crop farms, horse farms, livestock farms.
More young families are choosing this
way of life, living off the land.
(It's a good sign, I say.
A healthy way of life.)
