NPR farmer
 n.— «About half of the county is made up of farmland, yet Loudoun has experienced an increase in what Warren Howell, who promotes agricultural businesses in the county, calls “NPR farmers,” enthusiastic newcomers who sell their goods locally. For years, they have helped populate the county’s farmers markets and some have started you-pick operations and community agriculture programs. Others have added restaurants that cook using produce tilled on site.» —“A Shorter Link Between the Farm And Dinner Plate” by Alejandro Lazo Washington Post July 28, 2007.
