First and foremost, a farm is a business, but it takes more than just business sense to run a successful farm. Amara Farm succeeds because it’s a marriage. Love and dedication to the land, and a strong commitment to growing food make it possible to keep going even when the finances don’t add up. Like a marriage, it’s the relationship that counts, and farmer Arzeena Hamir has support from her husband, her children, her in-laws, and a co-op of like-minded farmers. These relationships help her achieve what money alone can’t buy– a successful organic farm.
