TRAPPE - As farmers across the Mid-Shore know, agriculture is a tough business, subject to uncontrollable circumstances such as weather, pests and ever-changing government regulations. Success requires a love of the land and a desire to persist, as Dixie Blades and Heather Grant demonstrate through resulting new customers and funding from government agencies, awarded this month to expand their microgreens project on Cool Beans Farm in Trappe.
