I have a cousin that I haven’t heard from in a long time that contacted me recently. She heard about our farm and she was interested in what we did, particularly our winter farming activities.

It turns out that she is a radical environmentalist, and she started sending me emails with stories from and links to bizarre web sites making all kinds of wild claims. Apparently things like scientific proof are old-fashioned concepts.  I tried to be nice about it at first, suggesting why some of these things might not be true.  But the emails kept coming, and I finally quit reading them. We believe in the good stewardship of natural resources and sustainability as a goal, but most of what she sent me was simply irresponsible.
