“I've chosen this career because in doing so, I'm choosing a lifestyle. I've had jobs—the 9 to 5, the commute, the cubicle—but I don't want to live two lives. I don't want a work life and a non-work life. I want to live one life where labor, family, health, happiness, intellect, and art all collide and merge.
“The small farmer's strength is in his passion and in her belief that there is something better for our citizenry and communities. What must happen right now is that everybody who puts a fork to plate needs to know the politics and challenges, the lives and labor behind what is on that plate. Rural or urban, our society needs food that teaches those whose mouths it touches. Desire for good, local food continues to grow and there are many opportunities for new farmers to meet this demand. I have to believe we can make a living doing it.”
