For many of us this time of the year, giving thanks for food on the table is a time-honored tradition. It may strike some as odd, being as I am a rancher, but I am thankful for the 100’s of farmers and ranchers I have met this past year in person and the 100’s I have met through various social media platforms.
I am thankful for the farmers who grew the corn, almonds, barley, cotton, and soybeans that make up the grain ration I feed to our bulls.
I am thankful for the farmers who grow the fresh fruits and vegetables that we are able to buy at the grocery store.
I am thankful for the farmers who grow the pork, lamb and yes, even poultry, which we are able to buy at the grocery store.
I am thankful for the farmers who care for the cows at the dairies and provide us with a steady supply of refreshing milk at the grocery store.
I am thankful for the farmers who grow the herbs, grains and other essentials that are so readily available at the grocery store.
I am thankful for the multitude of people who are responsible for getting the products from the farm to the store.
