Eating Apples

The Yoder family pauses to eat apples while working on their farm in rural Pennsylvania. Rosie Yoder’s daily life is a bit different from that of most other kids her age. After waking early to do her farm chores, she attends homeschool before helping her parents prepare for the weekend farmer’s market. Since 1900, the number of small-scale, family farms in America has fallen by 63 percent.
