Some of the most memorable, and least regrettable, nights of my own youth were spent in coon hunting with farmers. There is no denying that these activities contributed to the economy of farm households, but a further fact is that they were pleasures; they were wilderness pleasures, not greatly different from the pleasures pursued by...
Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on. The small landowners are the most precious part of a state.
It is not the role of the planning department to be used as a financial tool. It is to manage the steady evolution of land in the district, not to find a magical solution to the problems of the CAP. Farmers’ recourse and redress must be with Brussels.
I cleaned the shit off my pink high-tops and drove home, stopping for an espresso at the coffeehouse across from the college. Men and women were hunched over copies of Jean Paul Sartre and writing in their journals. Most wore the thin-rimmed tortoiseshell glasses favored by intellectuals. Their clothes were faded to a precisely fashionable...
Woods are grim places. Farmers shoot squirrels, crows, magpies, and hang them up on trees to warn Mother Nature to get it together or else. Much notice she takes, being in league with God. They’re a right pair, more carnage than the rest of us put together.
Farmers must now have highly trained financial management skills.
The wind blew my words away from you. So while I told you I love you, the phrase was carried in the opposite direction and landed 333 miles away in the ears of a confused farmer. He was nice, though. He sent me a kind letter saying that while he was flattered, I wasn’t really...
Farmers are feeling the pain of rising input costs, including energy prices, and fertilizer prices that have tripled in just the last few years. They are clearly looking for relief from costs pressures, which they cannot pass along to their customers.
What is interesting to me about Vikings is that they were failed farmers.
The joint venture and the licensing agreements bring together the strength of two industry leaders to deliver new technologies to the market more quickly. We are excited about making the results of our research investments in both genetics and traits available to more farmers, sooner.
We need to realize that there is very little incentive for farmers to report suspected outbreaks,
As long as there’s a few farmers out there, we’ll keep fighting for them.
I’ve known pastures where farmers have lost winter feed because of hay fires.
He felt with the force of a revelation that to throw up the clods of earth manfully is as beneficent as to revolutionize the world. It was not the matter of the work, but the mind that went into it, that counted — and the man who was not content to do small things well...
The world needs more laws. I say this only because I believe the world needs more lawyers. If everybody was a lawyer, there’d be no unemployment, because the economy would be like a great lawsuit factory. Farmers in this utopia wouldn’t raise crops, they’d raise suspicion.
