The so-called farm bill came to the floor of the House of Representatives Thursday. And it crashed. The defeat shocked many observers, but the vote wasn't even particularly close: 234-195. (You can see how your own representative voted here.)
Michael Baute and Meghan Williams co-own this tiny farm, Spring Kite, in Fort Collins. Both had farmed as apprentices before, but wanted their own space and their own business. One-third of their produce goes to the farm’s CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, clients.
