Foundations

“When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”

-Daniel Webster (statesman, 1782-1852)

“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independant, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.”

-Thomas Jefferson (President, visionary, farmer, in a letter sent from Paris, 1785)
