“Crop Mobbing”

Once again I’m bemused to find that we’re part of a hot agricultural trend, without even knowing it.  The NYT had an article about “crop mobbing” – where large groups of enthusiasts and ag-curious folks descend on a farm and get a lot of work done as a social event.  This spring will be the fourth year in a row of friends coming to the north end to help out with the orchard.  Every year it gets bigger and more fun.

Of course, it’s a really old idea, only it’s been whittled down by modernity.  But the Amish have surely been doing it continuously for centuries.
