Today is National Thank a Farmer Day

Those who labour in the earth are the chosen people of God, if ever he had a chosen people, whose breasts he has made his peculiar deposit for substantial and genuine virtue. It is the focus in which he keeps alive that sacred fire, which otherwise might escape from the face of the earth. ~ Thomas Jefferson
I know many farmers in Virginia personally and they are a special breed, the backbone of the American economy and the salt of the earth. Thank God for the American farmer.
