Who is this Ben?

My name is Ben, and I am a 31 year old (as of this writing anyway) man living in West Texas.  I love reading, especially theology and philosophy.  Right now I am on a big reading growth spurt, having just recently gotten into the idea of sustainable farming.  I am really enjoying reading Wendell Berry and Michael Pollan.  I have recently started a garden and hope to start growing much of my family’s food in the upcoming years, and possibly start venturing into the world of farming and ranching.  I would love to become what Joel Salatin refers to himself as, a “grass farmer”.

Politically, I like to think of myself as a free thinking conservative.  Religiously, I am a deeply committed Christian, attending the Lutheran Church.
