The nexus of land, beast, humans, technology, commerce, community. Farmer orchestrates getting the right resources, in the right place, at the right time, and for the right reasons. He/she is rewarded for care of land and beast with conversion of the most elemental of pieces into substantiative food and fiber. The farmer is charged with playing the role of midwife, husband, and reaper. A social contract with the community gives these efforts and the things produced meaning and purpose. Supporters are beyond consumers. They are co-producers. It goes beyond eating a certain way. They enable and are partners in creating more functional farmscapes, more humane birth, life, and harvest of animals for food, and are enabling a lifestyle for farmers that’s difficult, but fully honorable.
