Farm Name

The phrase “scatter good” is similar to the wonderful saying, “Commit random acts of kindness”, and we think it also takes Google’s original motto (“Don’t Be Evil”) up a couple of levels. In addition, some readers might know about Scattergood Friends School, a Quaker boarding school in rural Iowa with a great farm of its own (you can learn about it at scattergoodfarm.org). John attended Scattergood Friends School for his first two years of high school, and a few years later he served on its board of trustees as a college student. Although Scattergood Friends School does a great job of “scattering good” in the world, the school was actually named for Joseph Scattergood, a Philadelphia Quaker. To try to prevent confusion about the two farms, we’ve named our farm with the words “Scatter” and “Good” separate to emphasize our focus on scattering good in the world, and we have indicated our farm’s location in the state of Maine in our farm’s url, scattergoodfarm.me.
