I seriously just love doing lists about farm life. I’m not sure why, I guess it’s because I love realizing small things about it as I write.
This list got started in my head when I was at the local farm store. I sat there and was picking out farmers vs. town people, then I was trying to guess what the farmer raised, and then I finally came to the realization that I should write a blog about what makes a farmer, a ‘farmer’. Hope you enjoy my list because it makes me smile when I think of all the farmers out there and how alike we all are!
1.) You wear a hat with the kind of corn you plant. (Pioneer, DeKalb, LG)
2.) You have boots for two seasons, spring and winter.
3.) You have work clothes and good clothes. They’re not the same thing. Your work clothes aren’t for public eyes.
4.) You have your farm name on either your truck, semi, or trailer.
5.) You are very much a ‘brand based’ person. From your truck, to your seed corn, to your tractors.
6.) You call your friends to see how much rain they got a mile down the road.
8.) Your snapchats, instagram pictures, facebook, and twitter are full of farm pictures.
8.) In the fall and spring you have no life AND LOVE IT! Get that corn planted/picked.
9.) You’re always willing to help a neighbor and you’re very family based.
10.) You go to the local feed store to get all the ‘gossip’.
11.) You wouldn’t want any other life.
