National Farmers Day

by Whitney Flach

Today is National Farmer’s Day! A day of honor is very much deserved to all of the hard-working farmers. This day is observed annually on October 12th, as a day for people to pay tribute to all farmers throughout American history. October seems fitting for celebrating National Farmer’s Day, as it is near the end of the harvest.

From very early in American culture, a farmers endless hard work has been an example to all of us, and on National Farmer’s Day, we thank them for their contributions to our economy.

Iowa Department of Ag and Land Stewardship tweeted, “We’re thankful for Iowa farmers & producers every day, but especially on National Farmers Day. Your dedication, hard work & wisdom make us proud.”

Farmers, Happy National Farmer’s Day!Thanks for doing some of the best work in the world!
