I am extremely humbled and honored as a farmer that someone out there is looking to make the HashTag #thankafarmer trend on Twitter at JBChicago. Here are some other references to the same trend from Cut to Paste and Marketing Newbie.

I would also like to offer my thanks to fellow farmers for being a great group of friends and acquaintances. I am also thankful for the farmers who grow feed that I can raise my animals with. moreover my family can eat a wide variety of food thanks to many farmers out there. I am also thankful for the many farmers who serve their communities as Church Leaders, Council & Commission Members, Volunteer Firefighters, Youth Group Leaders, and may other Volunteer positions.

Here are some other Thank A Farmer blog posts:

  2. Great outlook on things, farming typically started out as a way to secure your family for the following year. As we’ve grown as a community it became a way to secure your immediate community and established an economy. Your thanks to the feed farmers just strikes home for me on that, i hadn’t realized it so much until that part. I have massive amounts of respect to every person in the agriculture business. And not just for the foods i have available but because it’s hard work. I help my family run their gardens and it’s no where near the amount needed to survive. It’s eye opening to see the craft come alive and it’s a dream come true to see how much easier it has gotten with our technologies. Thank you! #thankafarmer

  3. Go get them Ray there are a lot of people two and three generations off the farm that still know how much farmers contribute to our daily life. We support you and believe in the American Farmers.
