How I roll…
Found this online this morning…
A few stats about farming (in Australia) that amazed me…
I think we have a lot of preconceptions and prejudice to correct in our urban-heavy country. And I don’t think beating people around the head with angry words is the way to right those things. I know I stop listening when people start yelling – I suspect most people do. Plus I’m a lover, not a fighter. I suspect that even the most ardent liberationists and I still have heaps in common. I don’t think everyone has to be a meat-eater. Or wear leather. Or enjoy rodeo.
But that’s just me. I am proud of what we do here. Quietly proud. I don’t expect everyone to totally ‘get’ that, until they experience it. So I try to share our experiences here. Even the yucky parts. The yucky, heart-wrenching but necessary parts. The parts that force bushies to become so darned practical that we can seem a little rough sometimes.
It’s among the many, many reasons that I blog.
(And you have to admit, I share LOTS and lots of pictures with y’all.)
The I-love-raising-happy-animals bit.
The amazing sharing-this-work-with-our-whole-family bit.
It’s how I roll.
Did you already know the facts shown in the Australian Year of the Farmer clip above?
Is there something you would like to know more about, when it comes to our kind of farming?
