A crop of young farmers is hitting the road to spread word about sustainable agriculture - among them Coos Bay residents Kelly Mahaffy and Tuesday Reed.
Mahaffy owns River Bend Jerseys with her husband Pete. Reed is their employee. They are members of the nation's largest cooperative of organic farmers, Organic Valley.
Organic Valley selected Mahaffy, 30, and Reed, 23 to join about 15 other 18- to 35-year-old farmers on a mission to engage college students about careers in sustainable agriculture.
