|The Creole Tomato|
I am very proud of my mini farm and I think my dad would be to! My dad grew up on a family farm in St. Bernard Parish. After this his family sold the farm and went into other businesses, he still held on to that love of farming. He and his uncle leased land in Plaquemines Parish and farmed as a secondary income. I was lucky enough to go a few times before he got sick and could continue farming.
This project is making me realize how much I enjoy agriculture production. I am strongly considering working toward starting my own small scale commercial farm. I cannot stay what exactly I will grow and the method (organic vs. non-organic), but I will not over produce and sacrifice quantity for quality. The mission on my farm will be something along the lines of to first give my family and my community nourishment that came from their own backyard, and second give local restaurants the option to buy from an eco-conscious farmer that doesn't deplete our state's renewable natural resources by overproducing for financial gain.
Until next time!
