Wired has an article on high-tech farming in New Jersey. Some good ideas on producing food. In the article, they say farming is too inefficient and that manufacturing organic food is the way.

One good bit of hard data: it costs $.50 per head of lettuce to ship from California (where 80% of U.S. lettuce is grown) to New Jersey.
