"Like many small farms, ours has a rich diversity of life. Its patchwork of fields, woods, and wet areas (typical of much of the Northeast), makes ideal wildlife habitat—you’re likely to find more species of plants, animals, and birds around small farms than in large areas of mature forest . . . For the most part, they coexist with us in relative harmony—over the years I’ve come to think of them as having at least as much ownership of the land as we do. If it were just us and the vegetables it would be a poorer place."
