Home Consider This Howard’s Farm

Howard’s Farm


Ivan Cash grew up next door to Quimby Farm. Howard, Phoebe and the animals at the farm were his first babysitters, and he loved the place.  Now, as an adult, Ivan returns to the farm and interviews Howard. At 86, Howard is still farming, but it’s clear he’s slowed down. They talk about the past and the future of the farm.  We thought you’d enjoy this 5 minute video, not only for it’s beautiful pictures, but because it might remind you that your work is helping form individuals in ways you may not have thought of, and you’re building happy memories for lots and lots of people.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
