Farm sheep


"There is a certain rhythm and schedule to the work that we do but somehow each day evolves differently. Nothing ever runs exactly to plan which, to me, is a wonderful life meditation to practice. I am not in control of that which is greater than I."

Jenn Halpin, Director of the Dickinson College Farm
