TBF 016 :: Why am I farming? Farm Updates and a Hard Lesson Learned

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "What in the world am I doing?" From time to time that is a question I have asked myself on this farming journey, and this past week was one of those weeks where that question kept bouncing around in my head. It wasn't the first time that I have tried to answer that question though ... way back in October, 2006 I wrote a blog post simply titled "Why FARM?" You can click on the link and take a ride on the way back machine if you would like to read about my positives and negatives of that question. Keep in mind though as you read through that post that it was one of my first posts ... I wasn't even close to farming ... and I was just a kid compared to the old guy that I am now (or something like that).

This week I took to not only think about and write out some of my reasons for farming. As I worked though my thoughts on paper I was encouraged by my reasons and even excited about the future of the farm. On this weeks episode of "The Beginning Farmer Show" I share my...

"Six New Reasons I Farm"
  1. I really do love what I'm doing when I'm working on the farm.
  2. It is a great place to raise my kids.
  3. I'm a dreamer.
  4. I would enjoy making a living as a farmer.
  5. I like to raise animals with their created purpose in mind.
  6. I love being around people.
