Before Terra Cultura had a name, we referred to it simply as the art farm. We suspected other Art Farms existed and wanted to reach out to them as potential collaborators. A google search for the term yielded the well-established Art Farm Nebraska that has offered artist and writer residencies since 1991. The more I delved into Art Farm Nebraska’s multi-tiered website, the more it became clear that I would have to visit and learn its ways. As an aspiring fiction writer with an arts background, as well as a new farmer, it seemed to be a good fit. So I applied and was really excited to be accepted for a month long writing residency. It is appropriate that this is our Valentine’s Day post--Art Farm Nebraska warrants a love letter.
