Hi and welcome to FarmFoodLife.com. I’m Michael Barnes and I’ve been involved in the agriculture industry for many years, and I’ve come to learn a lot about what farmers do and why they do it. It’s always been a passion of mine to help share that information with others so that they can have a better understanding of the important work that farmers do.
I love what I do. Every day, I get to work with the land and help create something that is essential for life. But it’s not always easy. The challenges we face as a society are many, and they come from all directions.
There are political challenges, with policies that can be unpredictable and sometimes just plain baffling. Then there are the economic challenges, with markets that can be fickle and often out of our control. And don’t forget the human emotions, which can run high and lead to all sorts of conflict.
It’s enough to make your head spin! But through it all, I remain hopeful. Because at the end of the day, I know that we humans are capable of anything. We have the power to create, to destroy, to love, and to hate. But most importantly, we have the power to change.
