The backbone of the farm is not Dad—although, he does put lots of backbone into making the farm what it is. Nor is it, Mom. Mom doesn’t make the farm go; she helps Dad make the farm go. Mom says there is a difference.

Nor is it the seeds, fertilizer, or crops. Those are extensions OF farming.
The backbone isn’t animals with backbones…we all have backbones, so living breathing things don’t count as the farm’s backbone.
