On day 19, our 30 day challenge of what farmers do after the harvest takes us back to the old school today, back to college.
Surprise, many farmers are college graduates, and once in a while they get back to support their old college. Now the picture above is not from my college, but from my wife’s college where we gathered for a library fundraiser.Both of our families have members who are graduates of GAC in St. Peter, MN. Me? I’m a Golden Gopher from the College of Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Sciences.
Now not all farmers take the opportunity to go to college, but I did, and you will find many others like me out on the farms and ranches of our country. Agriculture is big business after all, and a better understanding of what you are doing is important even on the farm.
So next time you are looking for a farmer after harvest is done, don’t be surprised to find him on a college campus. He may be there visiting family, taking part in a fundraiser or enjoying a game, no matter what, he is there to support the old school.
