Bicyclist, Stari Grad Plain, UNESCO World Heritage List since 2009. This cultural landscape has remained largely intact since it was first colonized by Ionian Greeks from Paros in the 4th century BC. The original agricultural activity of this fertile plain, mainly focusing on grapes and olives, has been maintained from Greek times to the present. The landscape features ancient stone walls, small stone shelters, and it testifies to the geometrical system of land division used by the Greeks.—UNESCO
And the pig has never attempted to contest mankind’s claims to their own noble superiority as the paragon of animals. Indeed, pigs have remained on ambivalent if not friendly terms with most all humans until that last clear moment of apprehension of the plans of those that intend to eat them.—Porkopolis
Rosni Farm wasn’t my first or last job, but of the places I’ve lived/worked, it owns my heart. The pasture, crop and woodland, the herd, the barns, the buildings and the people, were featured in stories from 100+ years. The stories were part and parcel of being there, they were the soul of a place. Stories were told, around a wood stove, under a shade tree, on a hay wagon. They made work easier, they made the world bigger.
