It’s never an easy road, being a woman, but neither is being a farmer-that must be why there are so many fields, tractors, barns and homes where you will find a woman who proudly calls herself a dairy farmer.
The one you can hitch your wagon to. The one who leads you where you need to go. The one who shows you how to hitch your own wagon.
He may not be your dad but he raised you. He may not be here still but he guides you. It may not have always been perfect, but it was always perfectly okay because the ones we trust and the ones who trust us to learn are the ones we celebrate.
So for those with us; for those who have left us; for those who stepped up and for those who never wavered, Happy Father’s Day.
…and thanks for helping me get where I needed to go, Dad.
Just like every other day of the year the moms on our family farm will be feeding, milking and caring for our cows, tending the crops and of course raising the next generation, because every day is Mother’s Day on the family farm. So thank you to all the moms that are part of our farm family and moms everywhere….and special thanks to those mamas raising their boys and girls to be farmers.
