The joys of hard work

Nathan Wiebe
This might sound odd to some, but putting in a long and physical day of manual labour is surprisingly satisfying.

Being outside all day, using your body, experiencing the passing weather systems, the warm sun on you face, the fresh air in your lungs and the dirt under your finger nails is one aspect of farming that we really appreciate. I don't know why, but it just feels right!

With the rise of cities and technology, many of us have been swept up into jobs that require us to sit still in a chair, indoors, under florescent lights, staring at screens or pieces of paper, for the majority of our day.

I feel like if more people could experience a day of work on a farm, they might be surprised how much better they feel at the end of their day.
