Farming Slogans


I'm a farmer at heart, even have half a farm to manage although I don't live on it. The crops are barley to be sold to Coors Brewery in Golden, CO and corn to be fed to the farmer's feedlot cows. We are lucky to have an excellent farmer, and I always take his advice.

The farm house is on the south side of the county road. This photo is from the county website, it would be prettier with crops in the field.



I'll try to remember to take some photos this summer.

My rich cousins back east own the other half of the farm, and they want to sell it, so eventually I won't have a farm any more. I'll be sad to see it go.

Here are some pro-agriculture bumper sticker ideas promulgated by one of the extension agents at Colorado State University.

Farm Rule #1: Feed The People


When people talk about the high price of food, they sometimes forget that farmers are paying the same high gas prices to plant and harvest the crops, and the price of seed and fertilizer have all gone up.

Bottom line: there's no free lunch for anybody (except maybe the oil companies and Halliburton and etc.)

The small farms are disappearing. I love living on a farm because I have an inborn love of the land and I know if worst comes to worst my family would be alright. We don't do the work however, we lease to a very good farmer. The good farmers are also disappearing.

Farming -- It's not just for dinner anymore!

My family's treat when I was a kid in Chicago in the 30s, was to take a car ride out to the country and visit a farm and pick corn or tomatoes, courtesy of the farmer. The car was my uncle's. It was a modern marvel.

My mom and dad were farmers and very hard workers. They truly loved the soil and the fruits of their labor.

I am the daughter of a farmer. Lived on a farm until I went away to college. Loved the life but never had a desire to go back.

I can't even begin to imagine the long hours and the drudgery involved in farming.
