Everything I Really Need To Know I Learned On A Farm

Honesty. I learned it is better to point out the lame heifer to a buyer rather than wait for the buyer to find her in the herd, or worse, not find her. 

Charity. I learned the importance of giving to those in their hour of need. It could be taking a casserole to someone’s home after a funeral or combing the wheat field of a farmer who has been injured. 

Life and Death. I’ve seen calves, lambs, pigs puppies and kittens born, right before my eyes. I also witnessed death and the harshness of nature before I was three years old. 

Compassion. I’ve seen my Dad get off his tractor to move a bird’s nest out of the way so he could cultivate the field. 

Faith. I’ve watched the planting of tiny seeds and had God’s assurance that they would sprout and make a good crop. I’ve watched a newborn calf struggle to its’ feet and understood that fragile animal would grow into a productive cow. 

Work Ethic. I remember looking out at a field full of hay bales and wondering if we would ever get them unloaded and hauled into the barn. I came to realize that if you work steadily and stick to it, those bales will slowly disappear from the field. 

Patience. I know everything happens according to God’s schedule within nature. We can’t speed it up or slow it down; we can only work within its constraints.

We pray you'll make plans to join us!
