I quit day to day farming at the end of harvest last year and handed my part over to my nephew Tom. The farm magazines keep coming though. I don’t generally read them, but John Phipps who writes for the Farm Journal magazines is one of my favorite commentators. So today when a Top Producer magazine (a Farm Journal publication) showed up in our mailbox I flipped it open to the back page where John’s column runs.
(It’ll be available in text format in a few weeks, click the image above to read the scanned in magazine page in the meantime.)
I love you, Tom, but I’m glad I’m out.
1. I in general despise Top Producer. It’s all about glamorizing big farmers. I usually read it just to get outraged.
