In this issue we explore various Catholic businesses in rural America and discover how vital they are to their surrounding areas. There is a watermelon shipper in California whose reliance on the Holy Spirit is inspiring, and a family-owned concrete company in Minnesota that has a deep respect and admiration for its customers. You will also read about a farmer from Virginia who is striving to farm in accord with God’s plan for nature, not against it. There is also a fascinating story about a woman who is a horse bodyworker. As always, we hope you enjoy this issue and that it serves as a reminder to patronize local businesses whenever possible. They are a necessary part of thriving rural communities.
