The people we encountered made 2017 a good year

Lincoln Rader is all smiles as his dad, Justin, multi-tasks while discussing the March wildfires. Justin lost only two head from the fire but had to move or sell a large part of his herd because he did not have enough grazing left.
We take a few minutes to remember some of the people we interviewed and photographed last year.

We met some nice folks through our travels across the Southwest in 2017. And we met up with some we’ve known for years and enjoyed catching up, swapping stories and making excuses about why we haven’t made it out to the farm, over to the office or down to the river in lo these many months.

It’s always an interesting exercise at the end of the year to go through photo files and recall the interviews we’ve done, the stories we’ve written and the farms we’ve visited and photographed over the last 12 months. Here are some of the people we had the pleasure of seeing in 2017.
