Here at Just Fowling Around, we have the opportunity of meeting little future farmers. Kidlets that arrive with parents, that want to add to their flocks, however those kids have been henthusiastic and egggggggcited over the chicks and chickens and very often they become so henthusiastic, that they take charge of the chickens and eventually are involved in 4H, FFA, Scout and other youth programs involving animals.
We are honored to be a part of encouragement and watching those little future farmers grow as they learn the care of the chicks, the excitement of the very first egg, and then the big moment of exhibiting those chicks at their local fairs, that they've raised and nurtured. We get as much joy out of seeing their awards as they do in earning them for all their hard work and efforts.
All of the parents deserve awards for bringing their children up in an environment that allows those children to learn respect for the animals, for the encouragement that allows those children to develop a life long interest in their own futures and the future of farming in this country. It has been our priviledge to get to know each and every one of you and you have our utmost respect for your parenting skills and efforts in raising your children as our future leaders and educators.
We thought it would be fun to present a photo gallery, showing some of those kidlets that we've had the priviledge of meeting and working with as they come back to the farm to add to their pets and exhibition birds. We look forward to the months and years ahead as more children join the JFA future farmers gallery.
