When I talk with a local farmer, we talk about the process of creating food that nourishes; so, we may talk about soil, weather, crop varieties, or the hundreds of other details involved in raising food. I always come away with more insight on the complexities of farming.

When I last spoke with a "business farmer" (who raised pigs in a factory-like setting), the conversation centered on making money: how to cut costs, sell at the right time, and so on. He could care less that what he fed his pigs (high sugar diet) impacted the quality and nutritional value of the meat.

Two very different worlds, and I know which one I prefer.

I went to HP and voted a big fat 10 for both Mike and the TLC hotties. I do prefer, though, your photo of Mike with the kitten on his shoulder. Those blue eyes!

O.M.G. i so badly can't wait to click on that link...but to be polite (and say hi..."Hi!") I'm commenting first...

but now...onto hotties...

I'm so excited that I just came across this blog! I love it. Have lots of reading to do now.

LOL, funny blog post!

I found your food blog going through a few links. Glad I ran into it. Didn’t know that the food blog/recipe community was so big online. I love your posts!

I was wondering if you would like to exchange links. I’ll drop yours on my site and you drop mine on yours. Email at ramendays@yahoo.com or stop by my site and drop a comment. Let me know if you would like to do a link exchange.

Cheers,

Yes all of us farmers are so beautiful...snort! Kim

Hello, my name is Tim and I wanted to let you know about an article I wrote for my site called "30 Old MacDonald Had a Farm Blogs" located here: http://www.bestcollegesonline.net/blog/2010/30-old-macdonald-had-a-farm-blogs/

This article basically list the top sites about farm blogs and your site made the list based on the great content and message it sends. I thought you might like to share that with you readers.

Thank you

This is so funny. So farmers have supplanted chefs as the new hotties? I think that's great. Farmers are so often under-appreciated as it is, they deserve all the glowing attention and accolades they can get.

"Excellent farming blog! I, too, used to run a farm (just a small hobby farm), but that was too much trouble time-wise since I wasn't able to spend a lot of time there. And, by the way, I can't imagine myself having enough time for farming AND blogging. Not sure how you do that. :) Do you live at your farm location throughout the year?

Out of all the farmers you have photos of, I think I only spotted on who is not white. Farmers of color are beautiful too (and seem to be quite under-represented here).

I don't know about pretty farmers, but we have some pretty cows (well steers, to be precise). We have also started a business to help smaller indpendent farmers reach customers through the Internet. Please take a look and feel free to sign up - it's totally free to do so! You may find us at http://www.homegrowncow.com/?src=ihf and we're open to questions comments and suggestions.

Thanks,

John
