The man behind 'Thank A Farmer,' James Wesley is thanked by the Nations farmers at FrogFest.  After Wesley thanked the Fredericks family from Insight Dairy in Little Falls on stage Saturday, he was surprised with first Distinguished Service Award.

On behalf of the Nation Family Dairy Farmers. Distinguished Service Award Progressive Agriculture Organization Meshoppen, PA presents this plague for James Wesley In appreciation of his continued efforts to inform the public regarding the plight of the National Family Dairy Farmers Presented June 14, 2014

Wesley was caught off guard and got a little choked up by the honor. 'This is my first award and means a lot to me. If we didn't have farmers, a job that is 24/7 with no vacation and lots of hard work, we wouldn't be where we are or get to do what we do. Thank you for this.'
