|The view near my house.|
So what's my point? Here at Writing Belle, I always do stories that highlight the art of storytelling, but today I'm highlighting the art of farming - which is a story in itself. I visited the World Ag Expo this past week, the biggest agriculture show in the world. It's HUGE. And by huge I mean massive. I was there ALL DAY and I still didn't see a good portion of what was on display. Tractors, tools, dairy farm gadgets, ATVS and side-by-sides, 2500 pickup truck demo rides, delicious fair food (tri-tip sandwiches and Superior Dairy ice cream for the win!), pressure washers and welding helmets, drill kits and cow-washes (it's totally a thing), and so much more. Over 1,500 individual vendors. It was a long day, but it was fun. And it really inspired me to share with you guys just how important farmers are to our communities, states and countries. Farmers feed us, so when you can, support the farming community and - especially in California - try to conserve water so they can use it to keep their crops healthy and strong.
What helps them, helps you, too!
