It's About Feeding America

Farmer's Feed America, it's that simple. 

Agriculture is, in my opinion, one of the most important lifestyles a person can participate in. Lifestyle? Yes, because your work begins before sunrise and, if your having a good day, it may end at sunset, and even then you're on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There are no holidays. There are no vacations. There are no "personal time off" days. 

When I was a child my parents were dairy farmer's, as were their parents and grandparents before them. We sold our milk to a creamery, so we could help America have milk on the table.

Every single person needs to appreciate Farming in America, whether it be large Farming operations, your local CSA, or your local Farmer's Market. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Without Farmer's and their endless sacrifice, and hard work, we wouldn't have the wonderful abundance of food that we enjoy each and every day. 

Every now and them I come across something in the media that really just makes me smile,
hopefully it will make you smile too...

Thank you, The American Farmer, for feeding me.
