National Farmers’ Day, October 12th, brings a well-deserved tribute to hardworking farmers across the country. At the height of the harvest season, the day honours the men, women and families who put food in the grocery stores and at our tables every day. National farmers day 2020 will be on Tuesday on 13th October.
From very early on in American culture, farmers have been role models in their endless hard work. Not only do they provide the nation with the food we eat, but they also contribute to our economy in a number of ways. Before the seeds reach the ground, growers provide a variety of jobs. Since manufacturing, marketing, and tourism, farmers maintain small and large communities.
Some cities and towns in the United States celebrate their own versions of Farmers’ Day. Dates are filled with celebrations and festivals throughout the year. Many of them were detained in September and October.
October seems to be a good month for celebrating this National Day as the end of the harvest season approaches. Many farmers will be able to take a break from their hard work to join in celebrating this holiday.
