St. Lawrence County ranked #6 in rural America

A national farming magazine rates St. Lawrence County the 6th best place to live in rural America. The Progressive Farmer releases its annual rural county rankings today. Contrary to its name, Barren County, Kentucky, took the top honors. David Sommerstein spoke yesterday with Joe Link, The Progressive Farmer's executive editor. Link says the magazine names the top 200 counties based on a range of quality-of-life indicators and statistics. Then, editors visit the top 20. Link himself came to St. Lawrence County last fall. He says his first visit was in Canton, with Varick Chittenden of Traditional Arts in Upstate New York.  Go to full article
