Hard work is essential in making dreams come true out on the farm. You can see it in the grit of the 10 year old’s face, showing his first beef steer in the ring. You see it in the young couple with a baby in their arms selling their first batch of produce at the Farmer’s Market. You see it etched in the wrinkles of the face of the grandfather, who still gets in the tractor at harvest time every year. You see it in the dirt underneath the woman’s fingernails who just got done vaccinating sheep. You see it in the eyes of the 2-year-old as they carefully and patiently hold a baby chick in their palm. You see it in the man hauling one last load of feed to the dairy farm a county over. You see the hard work every single day in so many ways, and the farming dream sure is a beautiful one.
