Who knows what farmers want better than farmers themselves? Support your farming and ranching peers while finding the perfect gift for your loved ones this season.

For the meat-lover

For the green-thumbed gardener

CowPots are flower pots made from composted cow manure by dairy farmers in Connecticut. After starting plants in these pots, the whole thing can be planted into the ground, where the CowPot breaks down and feeds the plant as it grows.

For the on-the-go farmer

Iowa farmer and Hungry Canyon owner Melissa Nelson knows all about life as an on-the-go mom. Her unique key chains make a great stocking stuffer for your favorite “Rural Uber” or “Ranch Rig” driver.

For the bookworm

Oregon dairy farmer Derrick Josi published his book, An Industry Worth Fighting For, just in time for the holiday season.

For the farmer who lives in their truck

Life in rural America can mean many hours on the road. Farm-themed car freshies are the perfect stocking stuffer for the farmer in your life who seems to live in their truck. Dirt Road Candle Co., run by Iowa farmer Michelle Myers, offers several unique options. After the scent has faded, you can refill the air freshener with her $15 car freshie refill kit.
