Agriculture quotes (12)

Were we directed from Washington when to sow & when to reap we should soon want bread.
Thomas Jefferson   Category: Agriculture

A farmer purchased an old run–down abandoned farm with plans to turn it into a thriving enterprise. The fields were grown over with weeds the farmhouse was falling apart and the fences were broken down. During his first day of work the town preacher stops by to bless the mans work saying May you and God work together to make this the farm of your dreams! A few months later the preacher stops by again to call on the farmer. Lo and behold its a completely different place. The farm house is completely rebuilt and in excellent condition there is plenty of cattle and other livestock happily munching on feed in well–fenced pens and the fields are filled with crops planted in neat rows. Amazing! the preacher says. Look what God and you have accomplished together! Yes reverend says the farmer but remember what the farm was like when God was working it alone!

Even if a farmer intends to loaf he gets up in time to get an early start.
Edgar Watson Ed Howe   Category: Agriculture

Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and youre a thousand miles from the corn field.
General Dwight David Eisenhower   Category: Agriculture

No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem.
Booker T. Washington   Category: Agriculture

A cow is a very good animal in the field; but we turn her out of a garden.
Dr. Samuel Johnson   Category: Agriculture

Earth is here so kind that just tickle her with a hoe and she laughs with a harvest.
Douglas Jerrold   Category: Agriculture

I am open to the accusation that I see compost as an end it itself. But we do grow some real red damn tomatoes such as you cant get in the stores. And potatoes beans lettuce collards onions squash cauliflower eggplant carrots peppers. Dirt in you own backyard producing things you eat. Makes you wonder.
Roy Blount Jr.   Category: Agriculture

Farming is among the top ten most dangerous occupations. More than 1000 individuals lose their lives each year due to farm accidents. In 1995 there were 130000 agricultural workers injured and approximately half of these injuries were permanent.
