The Albert's farm house - built in 1915. The Alberts have farmed in the Stillaguamish River Valley since 1953. After 40 years of dairy farming, the family began the transition into becoming a crop farm. Today, a third generation Albert, Andrew Albert, operates the crop farm focusing on quality forage for livestock.
For the next six months, I'll be documenting the life of a young farmer as he faces a record wet spring, a collapsing farm existence, and countless other reasons causing one to ask, "How and why do they do this?"
