Barn Preservation

From the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Barn Again program:

Michigan is the lucky home to 21,368 barns built before 1960, 13th most in the nation. A new publication, Historic Barns: Working Assets for Sustainable Farms, is available from the National Trust. Written by Michigan small farmer and author Edward Hoogterp, this publication describes how older and historic barns can provide practical benefits to one of the most exciting and fastest-growing segments of the rural economy – sustainable agriculture. Using several case studies, the publication explains how historic barns can meet important functional, economic and marketing needs of sustainable producers.
