NEW FARMERS ON A MISSION

I’m a wife and mother who isn’t exactly a spring chicken but likens myself to more of a semi middle-aged hen. Professionally, I have worked in the Cyber Security field for several years, and many consider me to be fortunate and settled in my career.

You can probably imagine the reactions that I get when I tell folks that at age 44, I am interested in becoming a farmer. The reactions usually range from a half supportive head nod with raised eyebrows to a few chuckles. Both responses are normally followed by “Are you joking?” or “Why on earth are you interested in doing that?” Well………….(long pause), maybe it’s in my blood. My parents grew up in South Carolina on a farm. The experiences that they shared with me, however, weren’t idyllic, but presented as a rather sometimes-unpleasant necessity. So, I am betting that the question still remains, “Why do I want to farm?”
