10 Quotes That’ll Help You Fall Back in Love with Farming

Photographs and Compositions by Cam Pauli

Farming as a career can be mired in doom and gloom: Income is down, farmers are retiring faster than we can replace them, climate change is freaking everyone out, and those who grow it don't even get to enjoy it!

So, as with any job, sometimes you have to take a step back and remember why you love what you do—with a little help from Wendell Berry, Joel Salatin ... even B.J. Novak. Have your own favorite farming quotes? Post them on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag, #iamamodernfarmer!
