Big Five Hinton Farm Sign

“WHY DO FARMERS FARM, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming?” And always the answer is: "Love. They must do it for love." Farmers farm for the love of farming. They love to watch and nurture the growth of plants. They love to live in the presence of animals. They love to work outdoors. They love the weather, maybe even when it is making them miserable. They love to live where they work and to work where they live. If the scale of their farming is small enough, they like to work in the company of their children and with the help of their children. They love the measure of independence that farm life can still provide. I have an idea that a lot of farmers have gone to a lot of trouble merely to be self-employed to live at least a part of their lives without a boss.” Wendell Berry, Bringing it to the Table: Writings on Farming and Food

Many a farmer will tell you that they wouldn’t trade their life on the land for all the conveniences of life in the city, in spite of hard times and bad weather, droughts and floods, fickle market prices and rising expenses. Some of this seems to be represented in this hand-crafted farm sign, with its tractor tire shape and look of old barn wood as a background. It was designed to celebrate this family farm and to ‘pull out all the stops’ in design and production. Both hand carved and sculpted, this sign will weather for many a year, since it is made of high density urethane (HDU), a closed cell material that has the same density and weight as wood, but is completely waterproof.
