I recently attended an event at Huntington University that centered on faith and farming. At the event, students and leaders talked about ways that faith can intersect with farming principles.

Environmental stewardship, feeding the hungry and decision-making based on ethics versus “the bottom line” were all mentioned.

Seeing the way that the people at Huntington view ag issues was inspiring. To look at a business as more than just a way to make money, but a way to change lives, is truly special.

It resonated with me on a personal level. Faith and farming are both topics that are near and dear to my heart. They both led me to my job at AgriNews, something that I am thankful for every day.

As the members of Huntington took time to celebrate and be thankful for harvest, I’d like to do the same.

I’m so thankful for the farmers who make our Thanksgiving dinners possible.

I’m thankful for the early mornings and late nights they put in this harvest.

I’m thankful for my job at AgriNews and for the chance to tell the amazing stories of farmers and their journeys. I’m thankful to have caring, supportive co-workers.

Last, but not least, I want to say that I’m extra thankful to our readers, to the people that care so much about agriculture that they pick up their AgriNews each week and stay up to date on the industry.

There are so many reasons to give thanks this year. And you are one of them.

I wish you and your family many blessings this holiday season.
