A new blog I follow...

I've been reading a blog recently that's been pretty interesting.  The author has a clear voice, and I appreciate that in a blog.  Agree or not, it's nice to know where someone stands.

Normally I'd say something about the authors name, but she doesn't mention it on the blog, so I don't know it.  I don't have any connection with her except what I've read (even though she's said nice things about me in the blog),  and I just enjoy following her.

She talks about conservation easements being, well, for show, mostly -- and I find myself agreeing with her.  It's a great way for someone to get lots of money for doing nothing with their land...

Or the entry where she talks about farmers failing the basic math of business when they approach their farming venture.  Yep, it does have to make a profit.
 
The entry where she talks about what can exist solely on pasture is near-and-dear to my heart, as I've expressed a lot of skepticism about claims that you can raise various kinds of modern livestock, like pigs, or chickens, on pasture alone....

I've picked entries that I mostly agree with, but I appreciate divergent views, too.  Is there a blog that you follow?   Please do mention it.  I'm always interested in new voices.

You'll find her blog here.
