A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was create
We took Zack some supper last night and I told the girls to hop out of the Jeep to snap a few pictures. Each season I like to get a few shots of them in the field and compare them from years before. These farm girls are growing up so fast.
They love seeing their Dad + Papaw’s hard work. I think it’s imperative that we teach the upcoming generation the importance of taking care of the land and how each aspect of farming is important. From tilling the land and making hay during one season to feed livestock throughout another. There’s so much work that goes into agriculture and no matter the part you play in this industry, it all impacts the food we eat and how our world is fed. No contribution is more important than the other and our children need to realize the necessity of knowing these skills and being self sufficient. They need to not only know where our food comes from but also all of the effort and preparation that goes into taking care of the livestock that ends up on our table.
It all matters and education is important. It’s inspiring. It plants a seed into this next generation that grows into optimism, pride, and determination to continue the tradition that keeps our society thriving.
If you drive by and see a hayfield this summer, stop and take a minute with your kids. There’s always an opportunity to learn.
