Sharing Family Stories & Holiday Values

While we celebrate this time with friends and family, holiday dinners are also a good time share your farm’s history with the younger generations.

South Carolina Ag Commissioner Hugh Weathers:

“It’s a time when things slow down and you have the opportunity to sit and talk about your memories around things that are part of your family. Those of us in farming always have some story to remember some interesting times. Families that spend the time talking together have shown to provide untold benefits to them.

Being in the farming community a lot of those discussions center around land. My grandfather used to talk about buying and selling land. Or the history of a piece of land. Its amazing information and great to hear from a family member. It provides an extra look into the past compared to what most people get. It’s a time to slow down and appreciate family.”'
