There are so many working farms in our area and many more farms that are decaying and abandoned. I wish our government had, years ago, made policy that supported individually owned farms. I wonder if it is too late to save the struggling farmers. Like so many other industries, farming has long suffered the losses of profits, higher prices and government regulation. To me farms represent so much that is American- hard work, pride, family tradition and unselfish productivity. In this photo I purposely used a filter to "age" the image as farming in America extends to the very beginnings of the nation.
