"All around us there are plants that are here to help us, and we won't know that unless we immerse ourselves in nature."
"I think that when farmers farm for the lifestyle and for being a shepherd for God's creation, then they are doing it right."
"It's a lot of hard work. Finding the hard-working, good honest people is a must, because you can't do it alone. If you don't love it, then don't try this at home."
"I tell people at the market that you can pay us or you can pay a doctor. At the end of the day, it's cheaper to pay us. It's worth it."
"I think farming is the purest way to get into nature. You have a lot of time to introspect yourself and analyze what you want to do to better your life."
