October 12th is National Farmer’s Day and we’re sowing praise for indoor gardening, organic growing, hemp cultivating and local agricultural farming of all kinds and methods – hydroponic, aeroponic, aquaponic and the traditional Old Farmer’s way!
Although the origins are unclear, the holiday (originally called Old Farmer’s Day) dates back at least to the 1800s. Before a seed is even planted, farmers supply a stream of manufacturing, marketing, tourism and jobs to local communities. According to the American Farm Bureau Foundation, family farms and ranches produce almost 90% of sold agricultural products. National Farmer’s Day on October 12, 2020 offers much deserved homage to the hard-working farmers across the nation towards the end of the harvest season as they help put food on our table and clothes on our back.
