The Farmer

If you aren’t aware, the dairy industry is struggling right now. Has been for some time. And its not getting better 😦  Milk prices are low, have been for awhile, and costs have not gone down. Makes me sad to hear that we have farmer friends who can’t pay bills. Who look at the bills, and have to decide which one to pay first. It’s not easy here either. We are blessed to be on a family farm, and thankful for supportive parents. Not something everyone has.

There are far to many rumors that go around about farming, and the public buys into it. Too many people drinking soda, and sugary drinks, and non dairy milk.

Too many people who think farmers don’t care, and are just in it for the money. To us, farming is about family. About teaching our children the value of hard work, and responsibility.

By the way, in case you are new here, I have taken a trip down memory lane for some of these photos 🙂 I love looking back!

This photo reminds me of the promise of God. That someone else is in control. And He is faithful! Through good times and bad. Through profit and loss.

And we realize that our children have so many blessings, growing up on a farm. It might not always seem that way 🙂 We don’t get to vacation like others. My children don’t always enjoy chores 🙂 And I know they work harder than some children have too. I’m proud of them for it. 

They also get to experience things that so many other children don’t. Like land to explore, and room to roam 🙂

So we keep doing what we do, keep praying, and hope the future changes for our children. For the next generation of farmers.This photo was taken in 2014, because we hosted a county field night. Look at them, so little 🙂

Press on, friends! And thanks for stopping by!

  1. May God bless you all and sustain you through His miraculous provision during this time! You have been on my daily prayer list for a long time, and I will surely keep praying for you all. Keep encouraged!

  2. I’ve been praying for the dairy farmers for a few years now. If things don’t get better fast, things are going to look a whole lot different in the farm world when this is over. Thanks for your courage!
