I Grew Up On A Farm

Growing up on a farm is the best. You can't beat the life lessons, the hard work and rewards, the family time. Here are a few reasons we thank God every day that we grew up on a farm!

Growing up on a farm means no neighbors. The quiet and peace is amazing. Wide open spaces and fresh air.

On a farm, you grow up knowing how to care for and love animals from a young age. And knowing they love you back!

Eating your yard! Growing seeds into plants and cooking what you grew.

Working on a farm means learning responsibility and patience.

Bottle-feeding baby animals. So much better than playing house!

Running outside barefoot.

Appreciating each season for a different reason.

When all the other kids learned about animals from a book, we had them in our yard.

The sound of the sprinklers running.

Learning to drive on equipment rather than a car.

Enjoying the smell of freshly-plowed fields.

Jumping on hay bales.

Learning the value of hard work. Watching your crops grow and recognizing you were part of the big picture.

Being really small and needing help getting up in the tractor or combine. The view from up there was so nice.

Eating fresh tomatoes right off the vine.

Learning the ropes with the help of Grandpa's strong, calloused hands.

Talking to the cows and pretending they would talk right back.

Hanging out in the barn.

Finally being old enough (or tall enough) to help!

Praying at the dinner table even though supper was sometimes pretty late.

Spending quality time with family, day and night.

Animals teaching you about the circle of life.
