“Why do farmers farm, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming? And always the answer is: “Love. They must do it for love.” Farmers farm for the love of farming. They love to watch and nurture the growth of plants. They love to live in the presence of animals. They love to work outdoors. They love the weather, maybe even when it is making them miserable. They love to live where they work and to work where they live.
Well, it is that time of year again. We are looking forward to our 2018 season, the girls and I. For the moment, the cold winter is making us miserable and we are ready to trade it in for heat and sweat and the work that makes us feel useful. Please help our farm make it through another fruitful season and sign up for our 2018 CSA.
