The Purpose of Farm Hands Companion
“Through demonstrating the skills and knowledge of the traditional southern farm, Farm Hands Companion resolves to aid folks of all ages and walks of life by inspiring them to resourcefulness and self-sufficiency.”
Farm Hand's Companion seeks to:
1 - encourage folks to aim for and anticipate as much success as possible, develop a fearlessness toward failure, and allow setbacks to spur a motivation to achieve.
2 - restore and maintain a culture of common sense, perseverance in spite of hardship, humble integrity, and national pride that are as valuable to everyday living for all Americans as they are and always have been to those who’ve lived the farm life.
3 - foster a desire to take up and improve the craft of traditional farming by building on the success of others, and developing it further within the bounds of good sense and practicality.
4 - retain and guard from loss as much wisdom and knowledge of traditional farming as possible, ensuring its endurance with the younger folk.
5 - endorse sensible living, enrich the lives of family and community, and promote enjoyment of the God-given journey of life to the fullest.
6 - explore the beauty and structured design of God’s creation, and at the same time demonstrate how the land can be productively worked while improving its quality.

*For all of you obsessive-compulsive disorder folks I apologize for not comin' up with an even "10" of these but it just wasn’t necessary to work up another one. If another one ever comes to me, I'll insert it as quick as I think of it.
Sincerely and ever yours,
