I Am The Farmer's Wife

Fall harvest has arrived on the farm, and the Ag safety campaign is being shared all over social media. "Share the road," "Keep your distance from machinery," "Do not pass." But do people listen?


While most drivers take precautions (thank you to those drivers), many irresponsible drivers do not. Accidents involving farm equipment and reckless drivers occur every single year all over the United States.


I'll admit, when one of our guys leaves the farm with a tractor and equipment in tow, my knees hit the floor, and I start praying for their safety and yours too.


He is my husband, my son, my brother, my uncle, my grandpa, and my friend. He has a family, and he is loved.


From a farm wife's perspective...


I am the farmers' wife following behind him with my hazards on.


I am the farmers' wife who helped him map out the less traveled road to our destination.


I am the farmers' wife making sure he gets to the field safely.


I am the farmers' wife making sure you see him.


I am the farmers' wife that sees you throwing up your hands.


I am the farmers' wife that hears your horn blaring.


I am the farmers' wife that realizes you are in a hurry without your hand motions and blaring horn.


I am the farmers' wife who knows how to use hand motions, a horn, and a few choice words too.


I am the farmers' wife that wants you to get to your destination safely also.


I am the farmers' wife that understands your frustration.


I am the farmers' wife that will block you from passing my farmer until it is safe.


I am the farmers' wife begging you to slow down and wait to pass.


I am the farmers' wife who wants you to realize why my farmer is on the road.


I am the farmers' wife who wants you to understand who produces your food.


I am the farmers' wife trying to keep you safe too.


I am the farmers' wife.
