A Thank You for Our Veterans

When you wake up in the morning, be thankful for another day.

Be thankful for the sun that shines through your window, or on some days, the rain drops that will grow a bountiful crop.

Be thankful for the rooster, who is sure to be up 10 minutes before your alarm is set to go off. He’s helping you make the most of the time you have.

Be thankful for the people around you that fill your heart and make sure they know it.

When you sit down at the dinner table tonight, be thankful for the food on your plate, the clothes on your back, and the farmer whose crop made that possible.

Count your blessings and give thanks to the brave men and women military veterans who have served our country, protecting our families and our right to live life freely.

Today, and every day, we thank and support our military men and women who stand for equality and justice for our nation and wish them all a Happy Veteran’s Day.

We are also proud to help sponsor a branding program that gives farmer veterans an extra marketing tool to sell their products with called Homegrown by Heroes. The program is open to veterans, active duty, National Guard, or Reserve members of the United States Armed Forces status.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Bob Miller of Nice Farms Creamery in Federalsburg, Maryland, on becoming the first registered participant under the Maryland’s Best Homegrown by Heroes program.

If you know a veteran farmer, be sure to share this resource with them and don’t forget to look for Nice Farm’s Creamery products with the Homegrown by Heroes label on it!
