No matter how trying, we love our work. And at the end of every day, we know we were born to farm.
The Farmer’s Day-To-Day
One of the main differences between our work hours and the average American’s is that there is not really an end to them. Farming is not an eight hours a day kind of job; it is from when you get up before the sunrise to when you go to sleep. And because of the variety of tasks that are involved in making a farm work, from maintaining the season’s crops during the growing season to fixing broken equipment, our day-to-day is never really the same and is always full of surprises.
It is some of the most satisfying work that there is, however. We are feeding America and we take great pride in producing healthy, natural food for people to raise their families on. Because we eat our own homegrown produce, fruits and meats, we don’t feel ill as often as other families that are eating unnatural, processed foods do, which means we have more time to work hard. It’s a daily grind full of unexpected challenges, back-breaking work, and immensely satisfying reward for your efforts.
We also have the best co-workers: our family. Although tensions may rise and differing opinions can make some days more heated than others, ultimately, the bond of our family and the love we have for our farm makes the work more entertaining and gives it more depth than the average desk job.
