Nashville, TN(RFD-TV) National Farmers Day is every year on October 12, but we should thank a farmer every day, three times a day. Farmers tend to livestock, scout their crops, fret about the weather, review data, make decisions and miss important events because they work to support their families. It’s not an easy task to feed 150 people per farmer, but someone has to do it.
