Happy Farmers

Farmer Derek Klingenberg, whose “What Does the Farmer Say” parody video I posted near the beginning of this blog, posted this video one year ago today. He contacted farmers across the U.S. and in Canada, Europe, South America, and Australia, asking for videos or selfies, to help put faces on farming — asking them to  “Dance around if you love this farming thing you do.” It’s a good reminder that we don’t just do farming in the Midwest — it’s universal — and most of it is done by families. The response Klingenberg got is included in this video parody of the song “Happy.” It’s a charming, fun, and heart-warming reminder that farm families are united by their love of the land — and that we need them all if we want to keep on eating.
