As we pause to reflect on all of those who “labor” for our country and enjoy the last few days of summer it is important to remember that not everyone gets the day off. In fact, farmers never get
a day off. My sheep are part of my family and they have to eat everyday. We will be up early as always and in the barn late into the night on Labor day as every other day. While we aren’t in the fields yet, there are many farm families who won’t get a day off of harvest this weekend. When the crop is ready and the weather is right you keep going! Not everyone is willing to work a job with no days off, let alone deal with the risk and stress involved in the job. As you stop to barbecue with our friends. Please take a second to thank the farmers who are providing that food for you, because they are probably on a tractor somewhere! Thank you to my Farmer!
