Wednesday, March 18, is National Agriculture Day. Those of us who work with farmers and ranchers all the time, and feel privileged to do so, understand the wonder and the woes farmers face every year as they produce the grains, the fruits and vegetables, the meat, eggs and dairy products most of us take for granted every time we enter a supermarket. And then we have the fiber, the leather and the energy we get from agriculture to keep us clothed and comfortable and moving across the country at a brisk pace.
We honor farmers most days. We try to tell their stories in the most accurate way we can. Today, we’d like to tell a bit of their story with a few pictures depicting a little insight into what they do for the rest of us.
