Anthropologists estimate that crop cultivation began around 7000 B.C. If that’s the case, then agriculture has been feeding the world and worrying farmers for about 9,000 years. Using the humor of a Southern storyteller and the insights of a person of faith, author and award-winning speaker Randy Frazier takes readers on a journey back in time to take a fresh look at the origin of agriculture.
What I’ve Learned from 9,000 Years of Farming shares circumstances that have for centuries forged the character of farmers, ranchers, and those who live off the land. With the aid of a “time machine,” readers will explore the history of farming.
You’ll compare apples to apples; meet a sneaky snake; learn the correlation between hay balers and higher education; and discover the many uses of handkerchiefs. You’ll also sweat through the Drought of 1980, browse a collection of photos from the Frazier Family Farm, and you may even find yourself humming The Blues. More importantly, you’ll meet three types of farmers and learn the one trait that’s helped them thrive throughout the ages.
This book makes a great gift for the farmer or rancher in your life. Available in paperback and Kindle at Amazon or you may purchase autographed copies directly from the author.
