We’ve teamed up with Whites Farm Supply, Case IH and James Wesley to ‘Thank a Farmer.' One farmer will win a $2500 White's Farm Supply gift certificate and a personal phone call from Wesley to 'Thank a Farmer. Today we recognize the Joe Entwistle in Litchfield nominated by Katherine Smith.  Here's his story:


I would like to apply my friends father Joe Entwistle for the thank a farmer. He is a hard working farmer and has a farm in Litchfield NY. He is an amazing guy with a awesome family that works hard to keep up the farm and provide crops for people to buy. He sells sweet corn and other vegetables. He also has milking cows. I am nominating him and his farm and family for this Thank a farmer because he is such a hard working man. Some people think farming is easy and in no way is being a farmer, owning a large farm easy. There is so much hard work that goes into it and its a never ending job. Normal people work Monday through Friday five days a week, a farmer's job is never done. Weekends, holidays, the work is always there. I have the utmost respect for those farmers who in this economy do not give up and just keep pushing through to make home grown products for Central NY to enjoy. Also a little while back one of his barns caught fire. Joe Entwistle and his family deserve this award and I am happy to nominate them for it.

Thank you Joe Entwistle for what you do everyday. We’ll put you in grand prize drawing for a $2500 gift certifcate from White's Farm Supply and a phone call from James Wesley, so he can ‘Thank a Farmer.’
