The Fantastic Washington Potato Farm

In my daily life, I am incredibly far removed from the production of the food I eat. I mainly procure my food from grocery stores or farmers markets which means that I am not generally a part of planning, planting, growing, nurturing, cultivating, or harvesting the food I eat. Because of that, visiting local farms becomes an almost sacred experience that always leaves me in awe of the process and so very grateful for the farmers who spend their lives feeding people like me.

I love sharing people's life stories in images in a way that helps connect others to them. This time I was not invited to be the photographer but rather to listen and soak in all their knowledge to share with my own audience.
