Why Farm?

A friend asked me why I love to farm.

I love farming because it’s hard (physically) and challenging (intellectually) and it’s political and social and fun (except when it’s snowing, and then it’s an adventure). Unlike so many other occupations where compromises must be made, organic farming is totally consistent with my most deeply held values. What’s not to love?

I wonder why other farmers love to farm. An article on the CRAFT web site summarizes a conversation farmers-in-training had about this topic a few years ago. Here’s the link: Why Farm?
