    Congrats on being farmer of the day. Self sustainability is a noble goal. I too am trying to live the simple self sufficiency life as much as I can.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    You are an actual farmer. They are a dying breed here in Nebraska as farms get larger under the control of big coporations.

    Have a great farming day.
