Or, you’re a farmer.

Unless you operate a golf resort, or a landscape design company, you may not think too much about how water drains across the land and how devastating it is when it doesn’t. Or, you’re a farmer.

If you’re not a veterinarian, you may have never splinted a chicken’s broken leg or assistant a ewe in the birth of a lamb. Or, you’re a farmer.

Building a fence and repairing gates, mending hoses, catching and storing rainwater, amending soil, manicuring a forest, or massaging the land…

Farmers cover quite the spectrum, and most modern day people would say, “that’s not my job!”

I wonder what’s more likely: a farmer is a gamut of professions, or that everyone has a bit of farmer in them?
