Wheat field graves
I’m not sure where I took this photograph other than to say that it’s in the middle of America; maybe in Kansas. It was taken in June of 2014. What strikes me about this image is the notion that for a long time a family or small group of families had faith that their land would always belong to them – enough faith in fact to bury their loved ones there, under a lone tree in the middle of a wheat field. But times change and these days companies like Tyson, Monsanto and the rest of them are buying up small family farms and farming the land under different motivations. No longer are these farms handed down from generation to generation. They are now simply acquired, worked for profit and maintained as corporate assets. As bad as that seems in so many ways, it may be a normal evolutionary trend brought on by the need to feed so many people with fewer farms able to operate in the black.Drop us a note or call 203 208-2838 to discuss ideas, time frame, and pricing.
