I'd been doing farmers markets for about three years before I realized I was part of the food industry. I know that sounds silly, but we farmer types are very territorial and are so proud to be counted among the roughly 0.6% of the population in our country who work in agriculture, we are slow to recognize this crossover.
But now I'm lovin' it! I've met a lot of great people working in food and it's changed a lot about what we do here at Three Springs. We're like kindred spirits - those living in the farming and restaurant realms. We all love what we do (most of the time), keep weird and long hours, put up with a lot of bologna, and bring a unique perspective to everyday things. I like being in the food industry and I thank them for making hayseeds much like myself and others of my ilk to be welcome in their company.
What I didn't expect from my newfound role in food was to receive praise from some of their finest - and both in the same month, for what its worth!
