Don't forget farmers

Thank you for the Points of the Compass article "No Stoplights, Lots of Pluck," April 14, about farming in Manlius, Ill. It is seldom when the nonfarm press carries coverage about issues farmers face. Since our vast urban population takes quality food for granted and seldom has the chance to touch the good earth, information that helps consumers realize the human cost of providing this food is welcome.

I have not been to Illinois, but what struck me is the similar conditions between the Manlius grain farmers and the small New Hampshire and Vermont dairy farmers with whom I work. Barbara B. Tiews, Lancaster, N.H.
