On President’s Day, I believe it’s important to remember one of America’s most unique characteristics – that many of its most famous founders and presidents were farmers.
The nation was built on the hard work of an agrarian population of farmers and tradesmen, and nearly everyone grew most of their own food, even in the cities.
Here are a few examples of the priority that the founders placed on the importance of agriculture and food production:
“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to it’s liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.”
— Thomas Jefferson
“I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman’s cares.”
— George Washington
