Thank A Farmer With Dairy Carrie | Over A Beer Podcast 031

Thank a Farmer. We’ve heard it over the years and I’ve even joined in the movement myself over the past decade by writing a few articles asking for others to thank us – farmers, ranchers and the agriculture community for the food, fiber and fuel that is used every day. But is that really what […]

Dodge RAM pays Super Bowl tribute with “So God made a Farmer”

The Super Bowl is the most watched television event of the year. By some estimates, more than half of the country watches the game. Many are just as excited, if not more, to see the commercial break ads that air during the broadcast. This year, Dodge RAM used their ad space to declare 2013 the […]

Saturday morning at Nashville Farmers Market

Thankful for Agriculture – Thanksgiving 2011
