It is said that farming is a profession of hope. The essence of this statement holds true in every sense. As a seed transforms to a seedling then to a plant; scientifically, it needs water, oxygen, and the right temperature. It requires the right place and should be planted at the right time. Afterall, “there is a season for everything”.
On a practical level the transformation process requires careful planning, great attention to detail, dedication, willingness to learn, improve, reinvent and the ability to implement. Since skill is a priceless possession of every great artist in every field.
On a financial and economic level, farming requires means of production: capital, labour, land and critically entrepreneurship. Then there is the management aspect which requires a balancing act with leadership. Management is said to be efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; while leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
When the ladder is firmly set in place and against the right wall, i.e. the strategy and tactical approach. The spiritual level sets in. Farming is a profession of hope, faith, and trust. These are the intangible elements that form the main ingredient of successful production, similar to water, oxygen and temperature. In the words of Joel Salatin – a renowned farmer, author, and lecturer, “A farm includes the passion of the farmer’s heart…”.
