Something came up at Merlefest this weekend that reminded me of a joke we have on the farm. I laughed and wanted to share the joke with my companions but it was going to take a lot of backstory explaining and would definitely not be funny to anyone who wasn’t there. It was a “you had to be there” moment. These are the moments we share that make us a farmily.
It’s the inside jokes, the pulling together, the belonging, the taking care of each other, the “finding your tribe”…it’s the farmily. We share so much of each other, our highs, our lows, and so so much love. It’s so much more than coming to work, doing a job, and going home. We linger in each other’s thoughts, we text each other outside of work, we worry about each other’s well-being. And yes, we have fun. But also, we accomplish so much together. I am overflowing with gratitude for this tribe, this farmily.
