Worth the Fight?
Is agriculture worth the fight? I suppose it has to be. I wouldn’t have started this blog otherwise.
What saddens me is that a fight is deemed necessary by some, when in fact it’s not.
We must eat. What we choose to eat and how farmers responsibly choose to produce what we eat isn’t really even the issue here. Ideologies and agendas and the occasional sales pitch are the issue.
I’d like to see all the petty bickering and political posturing set aside so that farmers can farm and people – especially our children – can be adequately and appropriately nourished, but I’m too much of a realist to believe that’s going to be allowed to happen any time soon. But hey,a guy can dream.
Until then, yes – I’m afraid it has to be #WorthTheFight.
