Farm days are not always easy days. Sometimes cows get sick, tractors break down, the water pump goes out, or any number of things happen. It is always something on the farm. There’s never a dull moment! – This day in particular our main tractor was giving us issues. Farmer John and his brother Stanley were doing their best to solve the problem. Stanley is mechanic and Farmer John is just a farmer, but they have to know how machinery works to know when it’s not working properly and to get it fixed. On the farm, it’s rarely financially feasible or efficient to call a technician. Fixing your own equipment is often the best way to get things done on the farm. 🚜🌾🐮 #undeniablydairy #georgiaagriculture #agdaily

#IAmYourFarmer The definition and stereotype of a “farmer” has certainly changed over the years. Farmers are not just old guys in overalls anymore, don’t get me wrong my gramps still loves his overalls. But the old man in those overalls paved the way for my dad who then has taught both my brother and I to love this crazy thing called farming. Each in our own unique way. Granted when I was 16, I never thought I’d be back on the farm. But my dad encouraged me to go out and learn stuff before making a final decision, to which I’m still doing today! I have the coolest job for our farmer cooperative @cabotcheese I travel around the east coast talking about agriculture from farm to table and how important it is for farmers and consumers to have a relationship. And in my off weeks it’s everything back on the farm. I’m trying new things to see where my passions are, and so thankful I have a family that supports my crazy ideas. From dirt on my jeans and boots that’ll never be clean again, to high heels and a dress at a conference learning from people with more years of experience in the business than I have been alive, to working in a grocery store directly talking to consumers about where their food comes from – I AM YOUR FARMER.
