    and I am both a farmer and a long time farmers market vendor.  I raise goats and sell our goats cheese.  My best friend has a ranch where she raises Buffalo, Yak, Lamb, Pork, geese, turkeys, chickens.... we are both "farmers" in the old fashioned sense.

    She and I wander the market, grousing about the "artisan" cheeses, made by people who never touch a goat or cow, or the "zuzus", meaning sweet confections, and the ingredient labels that say "mostly organic".  WTF is "mostly organic"?  Totally breaks state laws, market rules.... but it's not enforced.  As two farmers, both highly regulated, we get irked by the vendors bending the rules, hawking the same pasta you could get in the bulk bins at Winco for three times the price....
