In Their Words: “As we travel around the country with the Gibson Brothers, I notice fewer and fewer small family farms — farms that not only raise a product for market, but also a family. Economic pressure has just been too great for many of these small farms to continue and the beautiful farm life Eric and I lived in our youth becomes more of a rarity as time slips by. I know that things change and the world moves on. I get that. But I don’t have to like it.

That’s where In the Ground’ comes from. It’s really me mourning the loss of the world I grew up knowing and loving. As a child, I saw that world as common and forever. When I left the farm as a young man, I thought that it would always be there no matter where I went. And now I can’t find it.” — Leigh Gibson
