Farming is an important part of the world. Without it, billions of people would go hungry. Sadly, it isn't always the most respected occupation in the world. Many farmers are paid horrible wages and are mistreated. As well, when there are droughts or late frosts, the entire farm's production could be lost.
These quotes are a tribute to farming and the food it provides to everyone.
One hears a lot about the rules of good husbandry; there is only one-leave the land far better than you found it.
Wherever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been extended as to violate natural rights. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on.
Whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.
To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds, and watch their renewal of life-this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do.
Charles Dudley Warner
A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handy man with a sense of humas.
E. B. White
