March Nibblefest Theme: "FARM ANIMALS"







As a spiritual person, nature for me has always been a healing place. Going back all the way to my childhood on the farm, the fields and forests were places of adventure and self-discovery. Animals were companions and friends, and the world moved at a slower, more rational pace than the bustling cities where I'd resided my adult life.

"I think growing up on a farm in a certain amount of isolation, 

with not a lot of friends nearby, 
makes you entertain yourself and kind of grows your imagination 
-- being along is quite good for that.  You make up stories, 
talk to the animals, let them be an  audience, 
a bunch of cows..."

"I grew up on a farm and my grandfather quit school when he was 12, 
but when it came to common sense and animals, 
he was the smartest person I've ever met, before or since. 
He taught me that to touch an animal is an earned privilege. 
It's not a right...."

~Ian Dunbar

"It's no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, 'Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.' 
By then, pigs will be your style...." 
~Quentin Crisp

 "Visits to 'the country' were very important to me growing up, especially working on the farm, experiencing all the wonders of cats and chickens and pigs and calves and outhouses! "

~Trina Paulus


 
Art by Nibblefest artist, Sue Perez



"A border collie named Orson inspired me to buy a 110-acre farm with four barns and a sheep. 
That led to a series of books about Bedlam Farm and about dogs, rural life, lambing and herding sheep."

~Jon Katz

Art by Nibblefest Artist, Fran Brooks

 

"Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself in his farm or country fought to save it, struggles to make it beautiful.  Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart...."

~Antoine de Saint-Exupery 


Art by Nibblefest artist, Diane Ursin


"I used to help my grandfather on the farm, driving tractors, raising crops and animals. I used to feed some of the baby cows and pigs, and I had to be no older than 7 or 8. 
Then at about 9 or 10 I started driving tractors. 
It showed me at an early age what hard work was all about 
and how dedicated you have to be, no matter what you do...."
