With Thanksgiving approaching, we consider our agricultural heritage in the Granite State. We talk with a few of the farmers who produce our food in this state to find out about the challenges that come with making a living off the land, take a look at challenges for farming in the future, especially in a warming climate, and we discover the joys of working with the earth and animals.
