Living the country life in a small town, the significance of farming is never lost on me. Fields of crops surround me and on the right day I can hear cattle lowing. It's a picturesque and productive world with only the distinct aroma of pig manure upsetting perfection.
Living the country life in a small town, I'm educated on the challenges facing agricultural producers. I am sympathetic to their worries over the whims of the weather. I am familiar with the expressions, some closer to folklore than fact (Corn must be knee high by the fourth of July). I know that the biggest day in town each week is the livestock sale. It's a capricious and colourful world.
Living the country life in a small town, I enjoy seeing the fruits of farmer's labours at the annual fair. I appreciate being able to buy produce from vendors I know and respect. I celebrate the harvest and give thanks for the wonderful bounty is brings. It's a world of comfort and contentment.
In recognition of all of this I offer these fantastic collections of photos:
