National Farmer's Day

October 12, 2021

A day for everyone to acknowledge the ard work that goes into feeding and supplying a nation.  The day generally encourages everyone to thank the farmers and ranchers in their lives and to pay tribute in some way to the unknow individuals who plow, sow, rais, feed, and harvest to provide the food and meterials that our country needs to succeed.

National Farmer's Day was once called Old Farmer's Day, and it has deep roots that go back to when agriculture was much mor common in everyday life.  It is believed that agriculture is one of the workd's oldest industries, and the economics of many countries still rest squarely on the shoulders of the agricultural industry.

The day set on October 12th because it is after the traditional harvest times of many crops-back before the use of other methods to extend the growing season were put into practice.
