|Scott Terry and his girls|
Scott Terry is a dairy farmer in St. Lawrence County, New York. That’s way up near the top of the state. Scott hosts an online program every Friday night called Christian Farm and Homestead. I’m pleased to say that I help sponsor the program through my Planet Whizbang business.
It was Scott's Homesteader Life that inspired me to start this blog. I think Scott started blogging in January of 2005, I started this blog on June 18 of the same year. You can Read My First Post Here. That first post is now the Introduction to my book, Writings of a Deliberate Agrarian.
Scott has gone on to bigger and better things, hosting an agrarian radio program, but I’m still just a blogger.
So now, for the record, you know a little about the "early days" of the Christian-agrarian movement on the internet.
There were other Christian and agrarian folks back then who were inspired to start blogging by Scott's blog, and my own. Some eventually decided they didn't want to be associated with a Christian-agrarian movement (even though they were Christians and agrarians). A few of the bloggers from "back in the day"are still blogging, but most are not, for a variety of reasons.
People come and go, as bloggers (and as committed agrarians too). One of these days, my "voice" on the internet will pass on too. But I'm glad to be contributing to the discussion of building Christian-agrarian culture for now. And I'm pleased to see that so many other people are coming to understand the vital connection between Christianity and agrarianism.
