#FarmVoices

“we are young, we are capable, we will farm on!”

This video above popped on my Twitter timeline the other day. After watching it, I was inspired. It is so true that the youth in agriculture are the ones who need to unite and stand behind the values past agriculturalists have held. The future of this industry is in our hands, in just a little while we will be taking up the farms of our families. We as young farmers and ranchers need to remember to share our story with everyone. It is not enough to just feed and farm. We as agriculturalists need to spread the word! Agriculture is the backbone of our nation and it is time that everyone realizes it. If we don’t stand up ourselves, no one will. If we don’t tell the world our story, someone else will and I know it won’t be the accurate one. On Earth Day (April 22) they are encouraging people to take pictures and share their story via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, ect. and hashtag it with #FarmVoices so the world will hear what we have to say. I encourage you all do this, it is a great way to show the positive side of agriculture. Who knows maybe we could even get #FarmVoices trending!

    This is definitely one of my favorite videos of the year! The message was absolutely great and so inspiring. I cannot wait to see the responses on Earth Day. This video had a lot of hits in such a short amount of time, I have high hopes for some great twitter conversations via #farmvoices

    I wanted to thank you for sharing this. We have been so inspired by the support and stories since the launch of the movement.
