Last year I came across a blog that was titled 30 Days of Thanksgiving. I read the blog daily and found the words uplifting and inspirational. As October rolled around I saw a calling for a group of bloggers to take up this years challenge. The 30 day challenge is headed up by a Holly Spangler at Farm Progress. She has titled this years challenge “30 Days: Agriculturalists Who Influence”.
Here is my must read blog roll for 2014. There about 25 people participating in the challenge telling stories of life and farming from their point of view. Here is a link to the Farm Progress web site and Holly’s day one blog. The bottom of the post will be the list of bloggers participating in the challenge. Find your favorites and enjoy this Thanksgiving season learning something about agriculture. I am going to continue to follow Holly’s postings of, 30 Days: Agriculturalists Who Influence.
The first two blogs are blogs I have read over the past year. It will be interesting to read more about their lives and their style of agriculture.
This is the blog I followed last year. Carolyn titled last year’s challenge 30 Days Of Thanksgiving. This year her title is 30 Things I Love. I believe I will read more postings of her love of God, Family and Farming.
Jenny’s postings will be 30 Days of Food. She is going to highlight a farmer and the commodity they raise for food. She is going to take the commodity and incorporate it into a recipe. Caution: I think she could have titled her posts “30 Days of Weight Gain!”
The next postings are new people to meet. I have read the first couple entries and like what I read. They will tell me of their lives and help me see agriculture of their little plot of ground in America.
C K Jones is going to pass on the lessons of live to her daughter, Little C. She has titled her blog: 30 Thing I Want My Farm Girl to Know. I am already liking the simple things of life she blogging. I believe I will continue to read her blog into the future.
Shauna has titled her blog: 30 Days of Dirt Roads. She is going to be tell stories for the end of a long dirt road at most of us will never drive down, but it is were our food starts. Her family raise cattle and crops in Montana. She states the population of their county is 1200 and huge towns (pop 2500) are 45 minutes away.
Kelly’s blog will highlight 30 Days of Cattle Songs. Kelly’s family lives in Iowa and raises cattle. The title alone sounds light hearted, but I’m sure there will still be a message of working cattle in America.
I will be checking in on some other blogs, but this is my must read for November 2014. I hope you will look over the list on Holly’s blog and find your own must reads. Take the season of Thanksgiving and explore the world of agriculture and see how your food is produced by the Farmers of America.
