His story speaks to me in many ways, probably most of all that he was willing to take a risk to follow a dream, even though that dream may have seemed odd to many onlookers. He tells of the ups and downs of making a living through sustainable means. Selling honey from his beekeeping is his main source of income. He raises everything he eats and puts it by for the winter. An old milk cow provided his dairy, which he turns into amazing raw milk cheese. (I’ve visited and had a sample.)
The dream of bread&cup lies within this story somewhere. A value for simplicity speaks to me in this age of complexity.
