Honoring Farmers: The Why I Farm Movement

06/26/2014 @ 8:28am

At Beck's, we know being a farmer isn't a job. It's a way of life. A life filled with honor, courage and duty; both in and out of the field. A life empowered by dreams, inspired by God's wisdom. And a life not only devoted to a community, but the world.

As you may know, the Why I Farm movement was launched in 2013 to honor farmers throughout the country by telling their personal stories of faith, dedication, and hard work.

After a year, the Why I Farm movement has gained momentum with more than 170,000 video views and 20,000 people joining the conversation. And today, the next chapter of the Why I Farm movement begins. New videos, new stories and new content, but the same goal remains – honoring the American Farmer.

Each month, Beck's will release a new Why I Farm video with a different look into the world of farming. In addition, we're bringing you a redesigned website with behind the scenes interviews, farm photos, digital downloads, and agvogacy facts and resources.

As a member of the Beck's family, we wanted you to be one of the first to see the next chapter of the Why I Farm movement. If you have a minute, watch the video below of Kevin Ruth, a farmer and volunteer firefighter from Helena, Ohio.
