"Niche Farmers" Already Seeing Green
LINN COUNTY, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- While most farmers in the Corridor have yet to be able to get into their fields due to frost in the ground, a handful of their peers are starting to see green.
"Niche farmers" grow things such as flowers and fresh produce in green houses in early spring and late fall. This allows them to grow some produce such as corn and soybeans which makes years like this one more flexible while other farmers face delays.
