October 30: Spotlight - Modern Farmer

October 30: Spotlight

After a hard day's work planting garlic (tips up!) this week's modern farmers headed inside to catch up on some Modern Farmer reading.

Do you want to be in the #iamamodernfarmer spotlight, too? Here’s how it works:

Purchase our “I am a modern farmer” T-shirt. You don’t have to buy and wear the tee, but we’re contributing a percentage of the profits to Farm Aid to help support independent farms.

Share a photo or a short video, which shows how YOU support local farming in your region. Did you visit a corn maze this weekend? Go apple picking? Harvest and can your summer crops? Or, did you purchase local produce at the farmers market or local grocery? That all counts!

Post your pic on Instagram or Twitter, and don’t forget the hashtag, #iamamodernfarmer.

Go to this page often to check out all the Modern Farmers across the country – and world!

Tips up! Planting more garlic today with @johnny.wild
