Dear Farm Journal,
As we reach out to our loved ones to check in, I discern a common thread in our conversations. Life on the farm remains relatively stable. We continue our work. We grow enough food to feed ourselves and others. We are a rarity in modern society, in the sense that we work an age old trade, and as our economic system faces massive stumbling blocks, I am reminded of a quote by British sociologist, Teodor Shanin. He wrote, “Day by day, the peasants make the economists sigh, the politicians sweat and the strategists swear, defeating their plans and prophecies all over the world”.
