So, it’s been a bit since I’ve posted anything, but as the 2020 farm season begins – I wanted to add a post. While, I never want my blog to be pollical – it saddens me that one of the presidential candidates felt the need to insult EVERYONE in farming… and it also made me angry. The anger stemmed from the simple fact of how much the agricultural industry contributes to every, single person, every single day and the overall lack of respect that some people have for folks whose jobs require manual labor. No farmer, no food, no clothing. It also served as a reminder of why I farm and why I walked away from a six-figure salary to make significantly LESS …. To grow things and feed people. Something more important than collecting money and fancy things… even at my age.
