Today in the aftermath of some ridiculous drama, I decided to pull our focus in. Sometimes I forget how truly petty, vindictive, and immature people can be. Let me tell you all something. This… this blog… this whole farm, is about what we are doing. Not what we think you should be doing. Not what we demand of society. Not even what we expect the rest of the world to do. This blog is about us. It is painfully and greedily simple.
I started this blog as a record and reminder of what myself and my family has learned since starting this micro-farming life. We aren’t always right and we aren’t always wrong. I have never and will never claim to know everything. Who can? Even in fifty years I will still think of myself as a student. An experienced student, but a student all the same. Why? Because the day you stop learning is the day you lose your humanity. Anyone who claims to know all should be pitied for no longer being capable of experiencing what life is all about.
This blog is our journey. There will always be someone who does not agree with how we do things here, or how we raise our animals, or for what purpose. But, that is why we all have our own path to travel. We are not all the same. Wouldn’t that be boring?
We always gladly accept feedback and are more than happy to share our “lessons learned” with the world, you. What we are not in need of is hatred and spite. Sorry, but this is a drama-free zone.
To those of you wonderful readers who have the maturity and forethought to see us for who we really are and what our goal truly is, I thank you. You are who this website and blog is written for. Thanks for being there on the other side of the screen cheering us on! “Life’s a garden; you’ve gotta dig it!” (A little Joe Dirt quote for ya folks there.)
