Celebrating Thank a Farmer week is done like most American holidays– it lasts a whole week and has a lot to do with food! Saturday was the pancake breakfast, then raffling off a grocery store gift certificate, and, new this year, we parked a tractor at the local store!
Thanks to the tractor dealership in town for letting us use one of theirs since it was already clean and only a few blocks from the store! Tractors generally go less than 25/mph, so that’s pretty helpful! Thanks to the county Farm Bureau board members who volunteer their time to set up these functions. Thanks to the grocery stores that work with and support the farming community. And of course, thanks to the farmers who are responsible from everything in those stores from the bananas to the macaroni and cheese to the plastic used to package it all!
Check in tomorrow for the next Thank a Farmer post. We’re thanking Daddy for something pretty exciting!
