The Farmer

Wittenberg Platz, the biggest square in our neighborhood, is home to a wonderful outdoor market. Twice a week, it is also a farmer’s market and this man brings his organic vegetables from his farm, about 70 miles east of Berlin. He told me that the farm has been in his family for four generations, but that the future looks grim. Both his sons are uninterested in farming and he is quite certain that with his passing, the farm will be no more. Very sad.
