Thank You Consumers

Today is National Agriculture Day and while my new feeds are full of pictures thanking American farmers, I want to thank you the consumer

It is the (silent) majority of you that continue to have confidence in today's farmers that work hard to feed you, your family and your friends.

You see through the sensationalism and emotionalism behind those with TV shows and agendas and continue to provide food to your families that isn't labeled needlessly to boost your ego.
You teach your kids that milk comes from a cow, pancakes are made of wheat, and blue jeans are made of cotton (a plant).

Thank you for believing in us when we often feel everyone is against us.

Thank you for buying our products so we can provide for our families and buy from other farm families from across the globe.
Thank you for letting us continue a job we love that many have left behind.  Thank you for letting us put in the long hours that many don't want to put in and we do with a smile on our face and pride in our hearts.

Thank you for letting us raise our kids where they learn the difficult lessons of life every day.

Thank you for letting our family work together as a team without a corporation or the government to answer to.
Most farmers by nature are soft spoken, hard working, proud people who all think to say thank you, but assume you know that we are thankful for each and everyone of you.

From the bottom of my heart, "Thank you consumers!"
