Field Trip to Visit a Cowboy

There’s a new everyday epistle post out. But it’s not here where it usually is. Today we’re taking a field trip. A blog-cation.

Saddle up and click on over to Ryan Goodman’s excellent site Agriculture Proud.

Ryan is a real cowboy. Comes from the hearty stock of an Arkansas cattle ranching family. Smart, too. He’s currently in graduate school at the University of Tennessee.

And Ryan is social. His Facebook page I am Agriculture Proud has more than 1,400 followers. Find him on Twitter at @AR_ranchhand.

Ryan Goodman is Agriculture Proud

Ryan is also tall. He’s six feet four inches of tall, dark, and bachelor. Said he’s not ready to settle down yet. Single ladies, see if you can help him with that, will ya?

Humor and matchmaking aside, I’m honored to be guest posting on Ryan’s site today because he has a passion for telling the true story of American agriculture. And he’s invited some friends to join him this month.

So come along with me to Ryan’s cyber ranch. Meet a real cowboy and find out why I’ve been known to follow ag blogs, write about farm stuff, and collect photos of barns and livestock on Pinterest.

All this, a mere click away. Now go be Agriculture Proud!

And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor. 2 Timothy 2:6 NLT

Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? asks Paula Cole. Get with the program, Paula. They’re over at Agriculture Proud

    Aunt Aimee,
    When you were “matchmaking” I hope you remembered the three currently single nieces you have and talked them up.
    Love you much,
    One of the three

    Aimee, Read your post there this morning. I started following them on Facebook after seeing a Facebook post from you. Very well said. While I grew up in the same area as Jeff, I lived in town and like you was not in FFA or any of the other “farm” activities. I like to eat also and enjoy good cuts of meat and wanted to show my appreciation for the American farmer. We live in the country now, surrounded mostly with crop fields (hay & corn) for the local dairy farm. Our road is a small farm road and we usually give the “poop truck” (fertilizer) plenty of room to go by. :) The term “fresh country air” has a new meaning to us!

  4. Aimee,

    I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your “guest blog” on Ryan’s site this morning. Thank you for caring–Thank you for expressing your thanks–Thank you for making my day.

    I am proud to feed you my beef!
