The Farm: Let Them Eat Cake

Written by , Posted in Food, Sustainability, Sustainable Agriculture, The Farm

I am a firm believer that we are a construct of the experiences we’ve had and the decisions we’ve made. When I talk about sustainability I look back at my life, especially my time on my family’s farm for inspiration. I call them the Mad Cow Years, ten years of hell, with enough lessons to fill two books. Those lessons range from finances to virtues. This story is about generosity.

The Haymow Monster

Written by , Posted in Short Stories, The Farm

Kenview Farms

It’s a fact of life for farmers and their children. If you have animals you need feed for them. For Patrick, that feed was housed in the scariest place in the world; the haymow. It wasn’t just a place to be feared. You never go there in the night. You barely go there in the daylight. It was a place of terror where IT lived.

The Manure Pit – A True Story

Written by , Posted in Short Stories, The Farm

You can see by my last name of Kent that I have an auspicious, almost super name to live up to, and by chance, growing up on the Kent farm, wearing glasses and plaid shirts, throwing hay as a child and even now, putting pen to paper, I have not strayed from the oft used nickname that I have received over the years, but embraced it. I am a sucker for the super hero, a fanboy, soaking up what stories I can in an attempt to steal a piece of the great tapestry that the likes of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created, reliving those stories as though I was not John, but Clark, leaping tall buildings and stopping bullets.
