ORIGINAL POST: (make sure to watch this one too – it’s the full speech with some really cute, funny parts about farmer’s wives)

Anyone who grew up on a farm or knows someone tied to the farming industry can identify with this incredible speech from Paul Harvey at the 1978 National F.F.A. Convention. Hard work, strong values, long days and a commitment to the land and everything that lives on it: this pretty much sums it all up, and reminds me why being raised on a farm has been such a privilege.


From Farm Videos: We have been told that Paul Harvey gave this speech at the 1978 National F.F.A. Convention and liked it, so we developed the video with pictures of friends and family. It is a positive message for the non farming audience as well as a thanks to our farmers. This video is dedicated to farmers, both past and present who have endured to provide our safe, affordable and abundant food.

    I think he was speaking of most of our grandparents of all time. We all do so admire them as in those days farming was a really hard life but oh so rewarding and all in partnership with mother nature and God. God bless the farmers even those of modern day agriculture. The existence is dependent upon those that grow the food that our nation has such an abundance of. I truely wonder why it is that we in this country have so many of our brothers, sisters and their children going hungry. God help us all.

    God Bless my grandparents, farmers Leonard & Muriel Wernke from St. Charles, South Dakota (Gregory County) – they had to be talking about them in this commercial. May they both Rest in Peace… BA

    I was at the 1978 FFA Convention. I was Schuyler-Chemung-Tioga chapter of the the New York Association. I heard Paul Harvey give this talk, and it was the most inspiring talk that I had ever heard regarding farming.
