Agriculture, the Original Western Lifestyle

With spring in the air, I really wanted to highlight the backbone of America, and the foundation of the Western lifestyle, which is, agriculture, and I wanted to explore the underlying similarities between the two. Several stories in this issue highlight the importance of American agriculture and the ties that they have back to the western lifestyle. I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I enjoyed curating it!
