countryqueers i am your friend.
a soul for your soul.
a place for your life.
home.
know this.
sun or water.
here
or
away.
we are a lighthouse.
we leave.
and
we stay.

This poem by @nayyirah.waheed from her work, salt, truly resonated with me when I searched for a way to describe the farm. #WhiteOakPastures is host to one of the most unique communities in the region. What started off as a family farm, then an industrial cattle operation, then finally a #regenerative and #sustainable organic ranch has become a welcoming place for a wide range of people. In this special post, I’ve included other #queer farmers I am lucky enough to call friends and coworkers. Pictured with me is Sarah Jordan, one of my dearest friends and our Senior Gardener. This is @hipstergardener posting for #countryqueers #chosenfamily

It's so nice to hear that white oak pastures is down with the queers! I heard a great interview about their switch from industrial to regenerative, and it's even sweeter getting to read about your experience there
