A former executive at a mining company in San Francisco, Ami Gignac now raises organic crops and chickens on a farm in Ohio. http://money.cnn.com/video/pf/2011/10/06/pf_bj_chicken_farmer.cnnmoney/ Pretty cool idea! Like her, I was a former federal civil service worker. I moved to rural Georgia (an hour away from Atlanta) six years ago and 80 acres later, I haven't looked back. I love it out here.
