FILE - In this Oct. 8, 2011 file photo, North Korean farmers walk along a road through a farm field outside the eastern coastal city of Wonsan, in Kangwon province,  North Korea. Deep in the North Korean countryside, in remote villages in Ryanggang province that outsiders seldom reach, farmers are now said to be given nearly one-third of their harvests to sell at market prices. Collective farms are reportedly being reorganized into something closer to family farms. State propagandists are expounding the glories of change under the country's new young leader, although no outsiders are known to have been to the villages, since the new policies reportedly went into effect.
