Winners announced in the White House Farmer contest
'First Farmer' competition winners named.
The top three vote-getters have been named in an unofficial contest to find a "farmer" to plan and care for an organic garden and orchard at the White House.
This competition is really a well-meaning effort to get President Obama to set an example by planting vegetables on the grounds of the White House.
