Thank A Farmer Today

Farmers have a tougher job than most think.  They work hard around the clock, putting all of their energy and sweat into providing the world with food, working the land, and caring for livestock.  Those sound like important responsibilities don’t they?  Believe it or not they do even more than that, you should see their job description.

Farmers have inconsistent work schedules, as practically every decision they make is subject to weather conditions and cycles, it’s a gamble each day.  But does that mean they get to sit at home and relax during rainy days?  Not exactly…there’s ALWAYS something to do.  Their job is far from 8 to 5, it’s more like 24/7.

And do they get PTO or sick days?  No, there’s no time for that. They are busy being superheroes – working to feed and nurture everyone and everything on Earth.  Do they at least have consistent biweekly paychecks?  Unfortunately not.  If you ask me, they have one of the most selfless jobs ever.

Without them the world simply wouldn’t survive.  So pick up the phone or grab those keys, and tell a farmer how much you appreciate everything they do.
