The mythologist Joseph Campbell believed that a common archetypal story roots myths (public) and dreams (private). We are called to an adventure, face a series of trials, become wiser, and then find some manner of mastery or peace. From those experiences, we find common threads in other life tapestries. The Farm Life founders have experienced life trials that have left each of us with a consistent why – we crave unconditional human connection and believe deeply in sharing not only loads but also successes. In this why, we merge out of the “I am great” mode and into the “life is great” mode to make the world of consumption connected, traceable and ethical. Hook-in-arm, the founders of this movement have embarked upon a public mission inspired by the demands of children, land, creatures, and humanity. If we listen closely, we can hear those demands. That requires a selfless heart concerned with the greater good in all acts. We certainly don’t have all of the answers. And we mess up. But today, we present The Farm Life as our expression of mastery and peace. We invite you to find your own version of The Farm Life.
We are firm believers in showing compassion for all forms of life. Some of us are paleo, some vegetarian, some vegan…from one end of the spectrum to the other, though, shines love for the majestic creatures God put on this planet. Knowing your farmer is the surest way to make sure their livestock is raised humanely, with plenty of rich, grassy fields to roam. The Farm Life isn’t one single idea of how to live; it’s each human’s personal journey toward connecting with the land and the community. So whether you live in a 120 square-foot space in New York or on your own 500 acres in Montana, let’s find your version of The Farm Life.
