At nearly every farm I am at it strikes me of what an immense labor of love farming or ranching is.  It’s a labor of love for the land and the food grown, and for the livestock raised.  It’s a labor of love for the farmHers life.  No matter what type or size of farm, it’s always a love that is there and that love was very much alive and kicking at the Boxcar Farm and Garden in Maxwell, Texas.
