Busy for your sake

Farming – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a red tractor busy in the field.


Toiling for long days

In hot summer or cold winter

They grow food to feed us all

Man and animal alike are indebted

To the farmers who forsake their rest

So that there is always plenty to eat for us

Heartfelt gratitude to them from us all.


Farmers are seldom acknowledged for their services to the rest of the community. Thanks, KL for this image, for it reminds us to express our gratitude to them.

  1. Such a lovely acknowledgement to our wonderful farmers, Sadje. My little one has a tractor addiction so we have been to a few farming shows and farm open days this past year. As smart and advanced as humans are there is no truer statement than “Despite all of our accomplishments, we owe our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.” Thank you to our farmers for nurturing our grounds to feed our world.

  2. Too many farms are lost, some to inheritance taxes. The family has to sell the land to pay the taxes!
    Thankfully we do have a farm preservationist group that has ‘saved’ several farms in our area.
    It takes love of land and tremendous work to be a farmer and a farming family – whatever is grown.
