The 800lb. gorilla on the farm is climate change. Between wildfires last September, ice-storms in February, and the recent record-breaking heat dome, there is no denying that farming is become more and more unpredictable. These three "events" alone resulted in tens of thousands of dollars of lost revenue, sickened our staff, and caused significant damage to our crops and infrastructure. Now we are in a serious drought (with water levels lower than we've ever seen them in our 10 years working this land), plus the looming threat of an even worse wild fire season. In the midst of this ongoing disaster, our local community remains a beacon of hope. In a recent interview, the poet farmer Wendell Berry cautions us against putting "hope too far up in the power structure". The solution is local people, working to protect their local communities from a place of love. True patriots all.
