Diane Wedner, in an interesting article in the LAT:
Hobby farmers want their acreage to be far enough away to feel like they're living in the country but still be fairly close to mid- and large-sized metropolitan areas of 50,000 people or more — in this case, Victorville, Rancho Cucamonga or even the San Gabriel Valley.
I detect a bit of LA-centricity here... Exactly how many hobby farms are in the SGV or even Rancho, pray tell? I doubt there are too manythere aren't any examples in the article of this.
In fact, one Glendoran couple moved out to Apple Valley, "no longer able to accommodate their growing herd of llamas" on Planet Glendora. The wife says: "Caution. Our llamas will capture your heart." I guess some people are really getting into this stuff, which is fine by me. I'm just worried the Glendorans in question will start a colony over in Apple Valley.
