As agriculture becomes increasingly dominated by industrialized farming, traditional farms and ranches are being marginalized. Rural lands need to be repurposed to have relevance as agricultural uses and that may include rural estates and hobby farms. The rise of community gardens and urban agriculture are a result of the public’s desire for healthy local alternatives for food. Urban agriculture can conflict with zoning regulations and requires an advocate with an understanding of available strategies.
