Chilmark Hay, 1951 by Thomas Hart Benton
Sunrise to sunset
The farmer and his horse work
So that you and I can sleep in
Knowing our daily bread
Will be rich from the hearty earth
and their endless labors.
Every year I grow what food I can and every year I appreciate
even more all the hard work done by our local farmers.
Support your local farmers by buying locally grown food.
Small family farms are a precious commodity.
