“Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.â€ ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

My first job was as a farmhand in New Jersey, shoveling manure on a dairy farm. It was the hardest job I’ve ever had. It taught me that I was not made for hard manual labor.
