The beauty of agriculture

I have long tried to capture in words the reason for my deep love of agriculture and those who live the life. To try and help others understand why we do what we do each day, why we have such a strong sense of pride for this humble lifestyle.

I recently came across this quote by Elizabeth Ros and I believe it says it all...


We are family, we are bound together by our tragedies, struggles, and triumphs through sheer will power and love. We have each seen first hand defeating losses; we have all felt the weight of these losses and the tug to just give up. We continue on through it all, knowing our lives have meaning, truth and beauty.

We are agriculture and we are beautiful...
