plough and stars

posted October 30, 2012

Greenhorns, this is a blog worth following, both for its words (“Pulling a cool dirt blanket over a year’s worth of success and failure feels like shaking up an etch-a-sketch and disappearing that terrible looking stick man you spent all summer trying to draw“) and for its images (see below).

The Plough and Stars Project is a year-long narrative by photojournalist Erik Jacobs, who is chronicling his attempt to become a first generation farmer at The Farm School in Athol, Massachusetts.
It is a weekly story, told in two parts – words and photos – about the challenges of living our values through life on the farm, the inspiration that sustains us and the lessons learned throughout.
