“Farming is a profession of hope”
“As long as there’s a few farmers out there, we’ll keep fighting for them.”
“The farmer has to be an optimist or he wouldn’t still be a farmer.”
“The Earth is what we all have in common.”
~ Wendell Berry
The Palouse is a 4,000 square mile agricultural region in parts of Idaho, Washington and Oregon producing crops of wheat and legumes. These images were made in southeastern Washington near Colfax and from Steptoe Butte, a spot that rises 1,500 feet above the Palouse.
