It’s not glorious.
Hands stained from dirt and fruit, aches through your back and legs.
As farmers, we’re looking for good soil.
You can feel its texture, you can cup it in your hands and smell it.
This isn’t dirt, this is soil: it’s alive, it has a lot of distinctness from one place to the other.
It’s a unique opportunity to use our skills as good farmers on pieces of land that are rich with history and flavor.
