The Center for an Agricultural Economy
The Center for an Agricultural Economy serves as the organizing hub for Hardwick Vermont’s food experiment. Tom Stearns points out that he’s had 40 job applications in the past week at his seed farm. No wonder: Some of the slots pay $40,000 a year, they come with benefits, and there’s all the produce you can carry away from the test gardens. “We still have to convince the local kids, though,” he says. “They’ve all grown up believing that there’s no future in farming. But now there is.”
