In October two fellow 'FOEs' and I took an expedition up to Celbridge, Kildare to meet an organic farmer. Nathan was his name and he was by no means your average farmer. With flowing long locks of rebellion-to-the-norms hair and a semi-bleak attitude to the general state-of-affairs. Nathan is what I would call 'a farmer by intention'.

I really respect Nathan and farmers like him.
