And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker.” So God made a farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the field, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.” So God made a farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt and watch it die, then dry his eyes and say,’Maybe next year,’ I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from an ash tree, shoe a horse with hunk of car tire, who can make a harness out hay wire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. Who, during planting time and harvest season will finish his 40-hour week by Tuesday noon and then, paining from tractor back, put in another 72 hours.” So God made the farmer. God said, “I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bales, yet gentle enough to yean lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-comb pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the leg of a meadowlark.” It had to be somebody who’d plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed, and brake, and disk, and plow, and plant, and tie the fleece and strain the milk, . Somebody who’d bale a family together with the soft, strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh, and then sigh and then reply with smiling eyes when his son says that he wants to spend his life doing what Dad does. “So God made a farmer.” Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsSuper Bowl XXIII: “Montana & Rice’s Legendary Performance” | Bengals vs. 49ers […]

    My grandfather was a sixth generation farmer, of the two hundred year old farm. He was the kindest, gentlest, most good-willed, strong, hard working, honorable, and humble man I have ever known. He passed away last Sunday, in the arms of the wife he loved dearly for 56 years, surrounded by his beautiful children and fifteen grandchildren. He said “I love you” to each one before he passed. We played this poem at his funeral. This sign was on his casket, it was all around him. Never have I heard something that so well described the spirit of the farmer, the man in him. Rest well, Poppy.

    I'm not kidding, Dodge. Bring this back as a surprise commercial in the next superbowl. It will be the best commercial again.

    I miss that man, I miss hearing him on the radio.

    Could this be the most perfect commercial ever made? As one who was raised in the farm country of North Carolina, I can appreciate EVERY word. And Paul Harvey's voice conveys the God we were raised to believe in…..with certitude.

    Why is this video practically white people? The majority of field laborers are Latino immigrants and minorities, they should be in this video instead!
