If you're looking for something to do today then be thankful because it's Old Farmers Day!  You know you're thankful for the food they provide you!  So let's get right into celebrating Old Farmers Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, I am willing to bet that at least something you've eaten in the past 24 hours was either grown or raised on a farm. Farmers have been growing crops and raising livestock since before your time and they're not going to stop. They will get up at the crack of dawn and start their long day of hard work so that we all can end up with some food on our tables. So why not celebrate people who do so much to ensure the survival of our species?  If you don't think you should be thankful for the good old farmers today then why don't you stop eating your vegetables? Wait... that would actually make a lot of people happy. Hmm... Well, why don't you stop eating fruit then and bread? Yes, that means fruit juices too! Stop eating beans and nuts and stop wearing clothes made out of cotton too, while you're at it!

Oh, you're still OK with that? Well, stop eating dairy products, eggs and meat. Yeah... farmers raise cattle for meat and milk, chickens for meat and eggs and let's not forget goats and sheep either. How are those wool socks treating you? Give me them! Are you starting to see how much farmers have done and continue to do for us?  Then you better find a way to celebrate today!

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, why don't you start off by giving back to some local farmers? It's really not that hard, all you have to do is go to a farmers' market and buy it directly from them. It'll be fresh, delicious and the money isn't all filtered out to other outlets before it reaches the farmers' hands. And hey, don't be afraid to ask them what it takes to produce the food you're buying.  In fact, why don't you head to a local farm and see if they wouldn't mind showing you around a little? Tell them what today is and, if they have time, you'd love to come see what running a farm is all about. Ride around on a tractor through the fields with them, meet and pet their livestock and they might even let you sample some of their fresh goods.

But do you really want to show your appreciation... I mean, REALLY show your appreciation? Well then tell the farmer that you'd like to help out for the day and are willing to do whatever tasks they feel comfortable with you doing. There is ALWAYS work to be done on a farm and I'm sure most farmers wouldn't say no to that! Who knows, you might even get a home-cooked meal out of it. ;) Have a great day and go work on that farmer's tan!
