At the end of an organic field day today, farmers drifted into various groups and conversations as usual. The conversation circle I joined included several Amish farmers. I was showing some other farmers how I could plant and seed with the BCS. When the Amish men leaned in to look at the phone pics around as well, they all started shaking their heads and laughing. I heard one of them say, "crazy".
"Well, you're not afraid of hard work," one of the older men said in a respectful compliment.
We all had a good laugh, but when the Amish start to make fun of your technology, it might be time to re-evaluate.
