Thank a Farmer!
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Farms are very important. What would we do without farms? We get a lot of food from farms. What kinds of foods can you think of? Here are some of my ideas:

      Milk
      Eggs
      Wheat and grains
      Vegetables
      Fruit
      Meats

3     Farming is not easy. It takes many hours of work everyday to take care of the animals and raise crops. It was even harder in the old days. Farmers plowed fields with the help of horses and oxen. Today they have tractors that run on gas. Some have machines that can milk cows. Even so, farming can be challenging. Some farmers, particularly those in the Amish country, still use tools not powered by gasoline or electricity.
