With a new year comes the normal resolutions – smile more, lose weight, stress less. We’ve got a way to help with those day-to-day desires! Farming can do more than just provide food and clothing for the world’s population – it can help solve some of the daily problems. See what we mean below!
Stress: Looking to relieve a little stress? Spend a day with a farmer. From a long combine ride, milking cows or even just working the land – farmers have some of the best ways to deal with the stress of daily life not to mention the best office view to do it from.
Boredom: There is never a dull moment on the farm – even in the off months between harvest and plant. Livestock needs tending daily, cows need milking and equipment needs maintenance. If you’re looking to do more, I’m sure a Farmer can show you the ropes.
Time Management: Are you trying to establish a better routine or wake up earlier than you have been in this new year? Add the Farm routine to your day. The cows won’t wait to be fed or milked, and every second counts when working on plant and harvest, so it’s an early morning every single day for Farmers.
Appreciation: Looking to add a little more appreciation into your daily life? In order to appreciate the work that goes into getting the food on your table, clothes on your back and a lot of other products to you, spend a day with a Farmer and you’ll quickly learn to appreciate how much work is put into your food.
Respect: If your goal is to respect more of the things around you, then farmers can help! Nothing will teach you to respect animals more than having to milk them every day, two times a day. Furthermore, spending a day or even a few hours on the farm will help anyone learn respect for their food, for their farmers and for each other.
Education: You’ll learn more from a Farmer than just how to plant and harvest crops. Their knowledge extends beyond the crops and livestock, it includes things such as mechanics, money management, weather forecasting,
Exercise: the most common problem people face and want to fix in the new year is getting in shape. You’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. But have you tried farming? It’s the all natural way of achieving the body you want without a mundane workout schedule. Just ask any farmer, they’ll surely recommend it.
