THANK A FARMER



Dedicated to all our farmers.  We have them in the family.  I've had them as friends also, often unsung heroes of the land.  To all farmers I send them love and gratitude.  Thank a Farmer :)

  4. Where would we be without them? I think a lot of us take our food sources for granted but that's not to say we don't appreciate those that provide it.

  8. Oh mercy yes!!!!!!!

    Thank a farmer!

    And now, I especially thank Organic farmers, because we try to eat organic food, whenever we can.

    And on the other side of the coin, every time you purchase and consume *processed foods*... You are thanking and putting money into the coffers, of Big Business "Foods". Which I avoid doing, as much as possible.

    1. Hi LC, most definitely. I buy more and more organics when I can, and I read all the articles on processed foods, so stopped buying them quite a while ago.

  10. This is an awesome picture, it looks like it is made out of sand. Farmers are awesome! They work so hard for so little. They never fix up their dilapidated barns because they don't have the money. A farmer I know said that farming is in the blood.

    1. Hi Ginnie, there is a story about this picture. It is one of many photos I took yesterday and I will share a post about them soon. I was once told that a farmer may be rich in land but not in material possessions. They give their heart and soul and every penny don't they, bless them?

    1. Hi Cloudia, I live in the suburbs but doesn't take me long to get into farming country. The prettiest thing is to see those farmhouses and the old barns and silos.

  19. I loved growing up on a small farm and that took many hands and long hours to work so for farmers to make a living today is particularly hard work and deserve our thanks!

  20. I can't imagine being a farmer. They get up so early and work so hard. I do envy their quiet lifestyle, though, sometimes.

  22. yes not easy to grow stuffs. Takes a lot of hard work and determination.

  23. amen, and yet they are not recognized for all they do. People forget where their food comes from and who we have to thank. Big business has put small farms out of business and things like the bees are not protected. Some day they may learn but will it be in time?

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
