Celebrate National Ag Week!

This week, March 23rd- 29th, is National Agriculture week. This week we celebrate the farmers and ranchers who work everyday to provide us with food and clothing we need every day. They work day in and day out caring for the crops and animals we eat three times a day. Have you stopped to thank a farmer today? Why does society set aside just one week to those who work so hard to ensure we have food on our tables? Next time you see a farmer, stop them and say thank you. It doesn't matter if it's National Agriculture Day or just an ordinary Wednesday, farmers like to hear from the ones enjoying their labor. Sometimes we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget where the most common of things comes from or to just stop and take value in the resources we are given.

I ran across the below picture on social media this week and thought it says it perfectly. Farming may not be the most glorious or beautiful jobs out there, but they are the ones we utilize the most. The farmer may not get to wear fancy clothes to work or enjoy the comfort of an air conditioned office all day, but his sweat and hard work goes into providing for millions of people. This week lets honor agriculture and do your part in ensuring agriculture has a place in your tomorrow. 
Until Next Time,
