As a followup to their July list of 40 Farmers Under 40, Mother Nature Network is recognizing another forty young farmers, as chosen by their readers. While the original list was rounded out by high-profile names like singer Jason Mraz, America’s choice of agrarian pinups skews more under-the-radar, highlighting small family farms and startups put together by groups of idealistic friends. From milk-stained dairy farmers like Vermont’s Meyer Brothers (likes: “totally neutral milk;” dislikes: non-organic production) to sunburned backyard CSAers like Brooklyn’s Stacey Murphy (hobbies: racing Formula One cars, eating snap peas), it’s a cross-section of dirt-loving centerfolds diverse enough to suit any virtuous eater.
