Clothing is optional at Rising Sun Farms.   (Shutter Stock)

(Newser) – The motto of Rising Sun Farm in Wisconsin is “Unconventional Farming”—the naked pleasures of which Judd Spicer experiences firsthand and recounts for the Heavy Table. Spicer describes the moment of disrobing as “scary, liberating, strange, natural, different, fun,” but once he’s free and clear the real point hits him. “At Rising Sun, it’s not about the parsing of clothes that matters, it’s the stripping of judgment.”

Rising Sun’s owner has a couple different takes on the naturalism of his farm, ranging from the philosophical—“Naked in nature, we transcend from observer to participant”—to the practical. “Even when hot, humid weather hits,” he says, “it can be quite joyful working nude when it would be miserable working clothed.” To each his own, it seems. And there’s Happy Hour every day.

wow. there are so many philistines in this square world. people enjoys getting rod from clothes. that's good for them. if then sun gets too scorching or mosquitoes plague them, they will resort to some clothing. the problem is ...? where are the news ? anyway, QFT: " 'this' is a society of prudes that think our bodies sole purpose is sexual " i agree but there are worser places, like italy where just about half of the population thinks that fascism is OK and that those who are not must be communists who hate italy.
