21 Thank You Messages and Quotes for Our Hardworking Farmers

Farmers are awesome. Farming ranks high on my list of admired professions, as farmers provide most of the food we eat. And I like to eat!

October 12 is National Farmer’s Day, also known as Old Farmer’s Day, and is a great day to thank a farmer.

However, I’m sure a farmer would appreciate gratitude any time of the year!

How To Thank a Farmer

Here are a few ways to thank a farmer: 

  • If you know a farmer, I write them a thank-you note.
  • Take a minute to say “thank you” to the farmer when making a purchase at farmer’s market.
  • Write a positive review online for local farms you’ve visited or purchased from. 
  • Share a “thank you farmer” message on social media (examples below).

A Thank You Note to My Farmer

My husband and I met a farmer at our local farmer’s market. We signed up for his delivery service earlier this year. Once a week, we receive delivery of chicken eggs and various types of meat (whatever we order). Recently, we also decided to order 1/2 a pig. This offers significant savings compared to purchasing by the pound each week.

Below is the thank-you note I gave to my farmer.
