Modern Farmer Issue 4
In Modern Farmer’s spring issue, we take you behind the scenes of the both familiar (Mark Kurlansky, author of “Salt,” explores milk) and the wacky (the phenomenon of animal rain). Seasonal how-tos include building your own fence or making raised beds. Learn about scientific glass blowing (farmers need test tubes!), the resurgence of growing local grain in the Northeast and a cheese made high up in the Alps. Fiction writer Tom Bouman dissects the trend of “rural noir,” and staff writer Jesse Hirsch digs into the futuristic notion of farming on man-made islands.
