There are those who farm for food, those who farm for money, those who farm because it’s what they have always done. And then there are the Stollers. This family in central Ohio farms for spiritual reasons. They raise organic dairy cows and practice a way of life that is simple, beautiful, and in real connection with the land and each other. Similar to Mennonites and the Amish, they have chosen a life outside of mainstream culture. We spent two days with this family and, despite our differences, we fell in love with their way of life.
