Economic Conditions

As I write this, US stock markets are down ANOTHER 3.5 - 4.5%; This following a brutal start to October in which the Dow is down about 21% on the new month. Every day this week I've told myself we have to hit bottom soon. Who knows where that will be?

This has me wondering about what we're seeing in some of our value-added ag businesses. Will Fall Festivals be impacted by relatively high gas prices and a sour economy? Are consumers continuing to visit farm markets? What does this mean for our value-added ag and food businesses? Leave a comment to let us know your thoughts.
