Yesterday, we said good bye to Monroe Organic Farm's patriarch, Gerald Monroe Sr. Jerry moved to the family farm when he was nine years old and passed on peacefully, on that exact same farm. Jerry's father never used chemicals on the farm because he couldn't afford them. Jerry saw that wildlife in the area began disappearing when other people started using chemicals so he shunned them as well. Jerry Jr. took over the family farm and kept the practice organic. Jerry Sr. was so proud and thrilled to learn that Kyle would also follow in their footsteps and become a 4th generation farmer. My grandpa was an incredibly special person. He loved his family dearly. He loved all animals. And he absolutely loved life. He was always patient and kind and happy and one of the funniest people you will ever meet. He was, and now is, truly an angel.
