Winter Hits "the Farm"

A more personal note today - LL.M. candidates, alumni, colleagues and friends will often hear me reference "the farm." Of course, I am referring to my family's farm - a third generation homestead and 320 acre farm in southern Minnesota. This farm, and the traditions that I grew up with, formed the basis for my first connection to agricultural law. As my experience in agricultural law expanded through work with farmers, with other attorneys and scholars, and with the consumers that our farmers serve, my understanding and appreciation for agriculture has grown in depth and complexity. But, always in the back of my mind is "the farm."
So with this thought in mind, while I enjoy the moderate climate of the Ozarks, I report that the first snowfall of the winter hit the farm over the weekend, and my sister sent this picture.
