Down On The Farm

When you hear the word farm, what is the first 10 things that come to your mind? The first 10 things that come to my mind are…

1. Cows

2. Chickens

3. Eggs

4. Pigs

5. A lot of work

6. Tractors

7. Barns

8. hay

9. country

10. Silos

Yes, Silos come to my mind, when I was growing up I had a friend that lived on the farm, and when I stayed with her we would have to get up early in the morning and go feed all the animals. It was fun at the time, thinking about it now I don’t think I would want to get up at the crack of dawn to feed the animals.

I know if it wasn’t for those farmers though we would be lacking in the food area. Farmers play a very important role in our communities. Not only do they raise the cattle we will one day eat, they also produce the grains we use for baking with. Did you know those silos hold tons, and tons of grains. Can you imagine if your job was silo unloading?

I have been up close to those silos, and those things can hold a lot of grain. When we lived by a mill we would go play in the corn that didn’t make it into the truck. Sometimes I wish being a kid, our kids today really don’t know what fun is. They get to sit around on their electronics, but they are missing all the fun they can have with the elements around them.

How did you have fun when you were a child? Did you go cow tipping? What about paying on the big bails of hay? Corn mazes made by running through the corn playing hide n seek maybe? Sometimes I wish I could go back in time.
