Once I drove into central Kansas, north of Wichita, I began noticing large fields of what I thought was the strangest looking corn I’d ever seen. I’m from Iowa so I know what corn looks like. I detassled the stuff as a teenager! Was this some genetically modified large tasseled hybrid Kansas corn?? When I got home and was reconnected to wi-fi, I did some research. Guess what? It’s sorghum!! I thought Kansas was the sunflower state, but this shit was everywhere! I only saw one small sunflower field and it was dead. Completely dead. Kudos to Kansas for keeping me guessing. All day. Be sure to swipe through to see sorghum up close and personal. #travelkansas #kansas #discoverkansas #kansasmagazine #kansasliving #ruralamerica #ruralkansas #rural_renegade #agdaily #agdailymedia #renegade_rural #flyoverstates #sorghumfield #kansaslandscape #landscapephotography #nikongirl #shotonnikon #oklahomaphotographer #country_features #midwestlivingmag #midwestliving #fieldsofinstagram #takethebackroads

Today is National Famers Day— a normal day for most but a day to pause for a second and possibly tell a farmer why you are grateful for them. 🌾🥛🐄 They say that people don’t care about what you do but they care about why you do it. So, what is our ‘why’? Why do we do what we do? Well— for you, for your family, for us, for our family. For the next generation of consumers and farmers. 👨‍🌾✨Humility. Gratification. Pride. Compassion. ✨ If we don’t do it, if we don’t get up before the sun, sling on our muddy boots and do the heavy lifting— who will? Who will feed this growing nation? In 2050 we will need the capability and resources to feed 9 billion people. That won’t come from a lab. 🥩 🧫 Why do we do it? Because we can. Because we want too. Because we need ourselves as much as everyone else does. We need to continue to grow more food on less land while using less water. We need to continue to be innovative and maintain sustainability for the next generation. 🌾🐄🥛Some days, in this social climate it may be easier to just pack it in and pack it up. But— who wants easy? Easy won’t put food in anyone’s table. So everyday, we get up before dawn and we wear our ‘why’ on the sleeve of our tattered and oil stained sleeves. You are our WHY. 🌾🥛🐄 Happy National Farmers Day! 🌾
