Fall brings pumpkin and apple picking, corn mazes, hay rides and harvest festivals. We take time to connect with family, relax, and have some fun. I love heading to the farm in the fall. As a kid we headed to the farm where my mother was born. My sister married a sheep rancher and my kids loved visiting their country cousins. And now my mother-in-law is living on a farm near her childhood home.
Farmers work hard for the bounty they provide. Hours are long, often sunrise to sunset, and they rarely have a day off. Yet they are some of the most generous, giving and friendly people I’ve known.
As the days turn cool and the leaves change color remember to support your hard-working local farmer. Give thanks and celebrate the harvest.
Pictured here I’m enjoying the farm with family, and friends- even furry ones!
