Basically, in a nutshell, farmers today should never be short of business. Speaking of which, macadamia nuts are starting to fetch interest on a global scale, not to mention all the other nut varieties, cashews remain popular, and almonds in particular are very popular among vegan and the healthy eating advocates. So, to be manufacturing grain at this time is not always going to be easy. It never was before. And so for the hardy farmer who has always lusted after hard work, what is new.
Either you want to be a farmer for the rest of your life, or you don’t. Farming is not just any old job. It is a way of life. See yourself getting up at three, four am every morning to milk the cows and see them on their way into the paddocks? And then herding them all back in much later in the day? That’s the crazy hours of the free range farmer. But ask any one of them and they’ll be telling you that they wouldn’t have it any other way.
But particularly when times are hard, and there will be those times, the farmers out there could always use a few extra sticks of help. And maybe that’s where you come in. Maybe you love putting your truck to good use. And maybe you and your guys love getting your hands dirty. There’s grain hauling jobs out there if you’re interested. It happens at least once a year if the rains and harvests remain good and on time.
So at least you know there’s work to be had. There’s work to be done. Work is available right now if you’re reading this now. And just so you know, grain’s not the only thing you can be hauling.
