Why choose farming? Jean-Martin Fortier weighs in on the question. (Video)

During the summer, everything moves very fast on a farm. Fall is a time for Jean-Martin and many other small, biodiverse farm owners to slow down and reflect. 

In this week’s episode, Jean-Martin shares his vision around the question “why choose farm”. The farm is a space designed for an alternative lifestyle. The farm also allows for freedom from the highly formatted constraints of modern life. 

The importance of “why” in our lives is sometimes underestimated. However, questioning the reasons that push us to be the way that we are or to do the work that we do is essential for us to give meaning to our lives.
