Down, but not out… on the farm
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.

I know that you have written this when the situation is not yet crazy, but the start of 2020 has become challenging for all of us. Though we have been wanting and praying to be the best year for all of use, the beginning seems to be giving us the opposite. But still, it is not an enough reason for us to stop and wanting to be better. I am sure that once this pandemic has finally ended and we are back on our usual lives, we would achieve the happiness that we want!
