We have started a new column in our printed newsletter called “Farmers Write”. This is an opportunity for EFAO members and friends to share real-life short stories on topics inspired by life as a farmer.


We have provided topics for the 2021 year and are asking you to share stories from your own life as they relate to the topic.  


The topics are intentionally broad – please feel free to express in a way that makes sense for you and your story. We aren’t as concerned about style and perfect writing, as we are about great stories that others might find truth in as well. We suggest a word limit of 250 to 350 words.  We are able to publish stories anonymously if that allows you to be freer in your writing.  


Check out some of the past submissions here.
