I b«heve a man's greatest possession is his dignity and that no calling
bestows this more abundantly than farming.
I believe hard work and honest sweat are the building blocks of a person s
I believe that farming, despite its hardships and disappointments, is the
most honest and honorable way a man can spend his days on this earth
I believe farming nurtures the close family ties that make life rich in ways
money can't buy.
I believe my children are learning values that will last a lifetime and can be
learned in no other way.
I believe farming provides education for life and that no other occupation
teaches so much about birth, growth and maturity in such a variety of
I believe many of the best things in life are indeed free: the splendor of a
sunrise, the rapture of wide open spaces, the exhilarating sight of your
land greening each spring.
I believe true happiness comes from watching your crops ripen in the field,
your children grow tall in the sun, your whole family feel the pride that
springs from their shared experience.
I believe that by my toil I am giving
more to the world than I am
taking from it, an honor that does
not come to all men.
I believe my life will be measured
ultimately by what I have done for
my fellowman, and by this
standard I fear no judgment.
I believe when a man grows old and
sums up his days, he should be
able to stand tali and feel pride in
the life he’s lived.
I believe in farming because it makes
all this possible.
