The American Farmer

This is the face of the American dream. Keeping the family farm alive with the hope of passing it on to the future generation. When I asked how he did it ... he said "I have no choice, failure is not an option. Once the land is lost to farming it will never be recovered. The farm cannot die" This picture represents all of that.
