  • Seeds in Hands
    “I can feel the life inside the seed, real quiet, but there. Waiting for water, soil, and sun. Waiting to be cabbage.” -Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works, Atina Diffley

  • Eliza in the garden
    “The land was here long before us and it will be here long after we are gone. We live on the land and the life upon it sustains us. Everything we do has consequences in nature: all of life is connected; only our relationships redeem us. -Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works, Atina Diffley
  • Diffley's corn stand
    "The farm is a synthesis of the land, the people, and the business. A blending. A new entity with a personality–that is the farm. No two combinations are the same; each farm is unique, with its own character.” -Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works, Atina Diffley
  • Hand in soil
    “Farm soil is a wild animal held in captivity. Living in the soil are more undomesticated species than can be found above ground on the entire planet. This soil life has simple needs–food, air, water, and shelter. Just like every other species." -Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works, Atina Diffley
