One of my favorite things to hear about the farmer is from Paul Harvey. So God Made A Farmer!

October 12th is National Farmer’s Day, and it’s a day for everyone to acknowledge the hard 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 unknown individuals who plow, sow, raise, feed, and harvest to provide the food and materials that the country needs to succeed.

The day was set on October 12th because it is after the traditional harvest times of many crops — back before methods to extend the growing season were put into practice. That way, the farmers themselves would be able to join in the festivities because they would be done with the harvest.

According to the website, National Farmer’s Day was once called Old Farmer’s Day. Where events date back to the 1800’s.

However, in India this day is held on December 23.
