Robert Litt: Urban-Farm Pioneer

These 40 up-and-comers—all 40 years old or younger—are changing the way Americans eat and drink, from a vodka distiller who rewrote Nebraska's Prohibition-era laws to a White House chef who's fiercely fighting to improve school-lunch programs.

When he opened the quirky Urban Farm Store last year in Portland, Oregon, the 39-year-old Litt officially became a trailblazer in the urban-homesteading movement. He and his wife, Hannah, supply aspiring chicken owners and postage-stamp-backyard gardeners with baby chicks, organic vegetable starters and bee-keeping equipment; their guide to raising chickens, A Chicken in Every Yard, will be published next year.
