AUG, 2015 UPDATE: Howard was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this past April and I got the sad news yesterday that he passed away in his Marlboro, NY farmhouse, in care of his loving family and community.

I’ll remember Howard for his warmth, wisdom, and strong work ethic. I’ll especially miss his sharp wits and sense of humor, his simple yet profound anecdotes (“sitting is the new smoking”), and his zenlike equanimity.

I feel so grateful to have grown up and spent time with Howard and his family, and for being able to spend time with him last August to capture his story.

Howard Quimby is an 86-year old farmer who’s still active. Shot and filmed in Marlboro, NY, just down the road from where I grew up, it's an honor to document his story.
