This Is Old Farmers Day!

Today we honor the hard labor of farmers throughout American history. Early American culture was heavily a farming culture. Early settlers cleared fields and pristine woods, to farm the rich land. They brought seeds and farming methods with them. They found new seeds, and learned new methods along the way. Many of those new farming methods came from Native Americans, who were already farming the land.

Let's all tip our hat to all farmers for their contributions to American culture, values,society, and the economy. 

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
