God Made A Farmer

If you haven't seen it yet, here it is.

Paul Harvey explains everything so well.

Please take a moment to watch, listen and understand.


And the original version, given at the National FFA Convention in 1978

It a little longer a bit different.


  1. I loved this...didn't hear the original, way back (when I was 11 years old!), loved the version I heard during the Super Bowl. I miss hearing Paul Harvey's voice on the radio!

  2. This is awesome! Saw it Sunday Night. My husband was a farmer, and still is, at heart. He still does work in ag, just not a farmer on a farm. We have farmer friends, I buy as much as I can from the farm and farmstands. My kids were the only ones at school who didn't go "EWWWW that stinks" when they driving past a pasture! It meant only good things to them when they smelled 'the farm smell'. I envy anyone with a large farm, or even just a few acres and some veggies or bees or chickens, or whatever. I can't wait to retire so we can get back to the land...hopefully in VT, where our sons now live. Thank you for your blog. I enjoy reading, and I don't often comment, but know that your efforts are appreciated. The photos, the writings about the people and places, and even the animals from where you live and work. Thank you!

  3. I love the original version! I'm going to share that.

  4. So cool you posted this. We saw part of the commercial and wanted to find it. My husband is a Chaplain at a boys rehab. Thanks so much for posting it.
