Quail Hill Farm

i’m amy (they/them), an advanced apprentice here at quail hill. i come from generations of rice growers, bamboo shoot foragers, pig caretakers, chestnut lovers, farmers. to me farming feels like ancestral work, a way to hold big fistfuls of time, be in relation to those who have lived before, and realize all that is possible ahead of us.

here is a poem i return to often by a young ancestor of mine i love very, very much. i hope it brings you warmth or release.
