I heard it again just yesterday … the general manager of a local hotel told me that he prefers smaller 600-700 acre farms over larger farms of several thousand acres. He couldn’t tell me why, just that he liked the idea of a small farm over a large one.
We chatted about it and I tried hard to listen to his concerns – something that farmers don’t do enough of, and I admit, was difficult for me. The problem is that I didn’t walk away from the conversation understanding exactly why he preferred smaller farms. Either I did a horrible job at listening or he really wasn’t sure himself.
Because of that recent conversation, this video really hit home for me this morning. Enjoy … and share!
