Dear Lynn and Miller Family.
Thank you for all the hard work you do to keep SFJ going, and to practice and promote small farming. It is truly a labor of love, for both family and the land. Far more than a “job” or “career”, it is a lifestyle, one that requires daily wholehearted commitment.
We, as a multi-generational farming family, also share in this endeavor. Gardening, farming, and raising Heritage breeds while practicing a simpler daily life provides us with the opportunity to harvest wholesome foods, enjoy a healthy life, (albeit a hard-working one), and take care of our planet in a small way.
Although the efforts and accomplishments of an individual may seem insignificant, when combined with those of many like-minded others, we can and do make a difference. To all those hard-working fellow farmers out there, I say, “Thank you”! Don’t give up, know that you are appreciated, and your work is valued.
P.S. Thank you for holding fast and refusing to go “corporate/mass media/mainstream.” Our way is the better way.
