Happy Independance Day America



A piece of Americana, does it get any better than this?

Dear America,

Happy Birthday from a 4th generation farm family who is grateful to be living in this great country.

As we rise each day, we know we enjoy many freedoms that others who do not live in the USA get to enjoy. And even though I speak out against the anti-Ag groups as I feel they are trying to erode the very fabric that has made America what it is today, we all have the freedom of speech and the ability to speak our minds. So as we celebrate America’s Independence Day, make sure and thank those who served to protect our great country and if you know of a farmer in your area, thank him or her for helping keep our nation nourished as well.

In the event you have not seen this amazing YouTube video from some very innovative young farmers promoting agriculture, then I invite you to take a look. These young brothers are telling their story their own way.





Once again, Common Ground has another great video on American Ag and what you pay at the grocery store.



Tomorrow we probably will go to a fun & crazy 4th of July parade and after that, well who knows?! Maybe hang out with the grand-angels and their momma & daddy (but I will definitely avoid spending quality time with the back pack sprayer) and after that , well…. I’m still in the process of getting photos on the other farm faces around our area, but this next week we are gearing up for the wedding reception of our youngest daughter, Kaitlyn and her fiancée, Andrew-  which will be held on the farm. So more on that soon!

As always, many thanks for stopping by and wishing you and your family a safe & wonderful 4th of July.

All my best, Gayle, idahofarmwife@gmail.com
