Thank a Farmer with a Thank-You Note

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

When I was younger I also enjoyed visiting the farm of a family from my church. I loved the animals, the land, and even the smells!

October 12 is National Farmer’s Day also known as Old Farmer’s Day. This is the perfect time of year to thank a farmer.

If you personally know a farmer I suggest thanking them with a thank-you note. If you visit a farmer’s market, take a minute to say “thank you” to the farmer when making a purchase. There is also a site called Thank A Farmer that focuses on consumer awareness.

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 meats (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 actual thank you note I will give to my farmer this week when my order is delivered.

Thank you for raising grass-fed cows! I like knowing that they get to graze and have great living conditions. Their meat also tastes delicious!
