  • A Kid’s Life – and Death | Green Gate Farms
    is very different from an old rooster The rooster we explained enjoyed a long life on the farm His time had come we fed him and now he would feed us But a soft four legged newborn the hand that took its life we could neither see nor grasp Any answers had to come from ourselves and so the morning slipped away as the routine of camp surrendering to the sweaty drama of death on a farm in summer Is it dead yet the campers kept asking as Brownie lay flat and still at their feet No not yet We carried Brownie back to the pen All her mother s nudging and bleating could not make him move Only now did we fully understood the doubleness of this loss and what began next was a debate over who we should be saddest for the baby or the mother Neither time nor wisdom intervened on our behalf But flies did They have a way of cutting things short As does rigor mortis and cooling flesh Out of habit the farmer s attention turned to disposal to the fast and efficient way of the compost pile The children s tender mercies however gave him pause He was so used to the farm s cycle of life and death he nearly forgot that once upon a time it was up close and personal for him too These kids all of them deserved better A meaningful and deliberate burial was demanded Before lunch we gathered for a meeting in the children s garden Sunflowers were cut and passed around We talked and shared and explained how the farm gives and the farm takes away how the dead also feed the living by nourishing the soil The farmer dug a hole in the steaming compost pile Tender hands touched its steaming contents awed by heat even hotter than the beating sun A procession worthy of an Easter service followed the goat to his microbial grave One by one the flowers were laid on the straw Farewells were made Long live the soil a camper sang out Such is how the soil lives About Farmer Skip Skip Connett s boyhood was spent on a magnificent farm in Pennsylvania that got its start in the 1700s His career has spanned journalism public health and farming Most recently he was a member of the TOFGA Advisory Board and TDA Organic Industry Advisory Board View all posts by Farmer Skip death farm camp funeral goats kids video Statesman What to do with 35 pounds of tomatoes Video Campers move Guinea Hogs 5 Responses to A Kid s Life and Death Linda Anderson July 1 2011 at 2 26 pm Skip what a writer you are Some day these farm notes should become a book touching story well made Reply Melissa Laurel July 1 2011 at 2 29 pm Can I kiss the pile may be the sweetest question I ve ever heard in this circumstance And Skip your alternative
