Historical Tidbit:

Dairy Farms

Dairy Farms have long been a part of history for Whitman and it's local markets. In earlier days, there were several families that had all had ownership of farms scattered all around Whitman. They would sell their products to the local town's markets. However, most of the farmland has been developed. The only farm still in operation is Peaceful Meadows.

Our lens:

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. ... In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”
~ John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in

“We see the world, not as it is, but as we are──or, as we are conditioned to see it.”~ Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

"Making progress on longstanding challenges requires a different lens and a new approach."
~ Ayanna Pressley
The way we look at things; our particular view shapes our entire life experience and has a strong effect on how others react to us.
It helps to clean off our own lens once in a while, to get a new view. ~ Jacquie
