Farming is like playing five-card poker with four cards.

I’ve listed below some of the main principles of organic farming.
*The principle of health; claims that organic farming is intended to protect the enhance the health of all organisms
*The principle of ecology; which is based on the fact that organic farming should protect and benefit the environment (landscape, climate, natural habitats, air, water, soil)
*The principle of fairness; aims to provide socially and ecologically appropriate management over environmental resources, as well as provide a sufficient supply of quality food and other products.

When cultivating corn with a tractor, keep one eye on the corn row, one eye on the cultivator, one eye looking out for the stones, and one eye on the fence at the end of the field.

There are only three things that can kill a farmer: lightning, rolling over in a tractor, and old age.
The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.
John F. Kennedy, attributed, Whispers from the Farm
Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil, and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, speech in Peoria,Illinois, Sep 25,1956
