Photos by Salt Water New England
Those signing up for CSAs and Farm Shares now, when the money is the most appreciated, may find the following story interesting:
[A] growing movement of highly educated, ex-urban, first-time farmers... are capitalizing on booming consumer demand for local and sustainable foods and, experts say, could have a broad impact on the food system. 
For only the second time in the last century, the number of farmers under 35 years old is increasing, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s latest Census of Agriculture.

Country Life: The regional bespoke tailors who offer a proper alternative to Savile Row

Photo by Salt Water New England
Writes Jonathan Self:
I set myself quite a strict brief. I wanted a tailor who only offered bespoke, as tailors who sell other products (made-to-measure, ready-to-wear, shoes and/or accessories) can’t possibly be as obsessed with quality. 
I also wanted someone who managed every stage of the process in-house. Some so-called bespoke tailors are actually little more than measurement takers, outsourcing the cutting and sewing to commercial workrooms. 
My future tailor’s personal style was, naturally, of paramount importance.

What Makes a House Feel Alive?

For families and friends, what makes a house alive?  Photos by Salt Water New England
Some houses feel alive, and others feel more inert.  For those with an ocean or salt marsh view, or that live around farm animals, this energy can almost be taken for granted.  One can add to it in other ways as well.
