Without farmers, no country can progress. “Let us salute all the farmers for all the hard work they put in to make sure that we never sleep hungry.
3rd December is a very special day in Ghana, this is due to the fact that farmers are celebrated and appreciated for all their hardwork and efforts.
Farmers are vital in every country and our nation can't be any less, Ghana as a nation that grows cocoa and timber for revenue really needs farmers. This is to say farmers are essential to the development of the country.
A farmer is a person engaged in agriculture, raising living organisms for food or raw materials. The term farmer are mostly used by people who do some combination of raising field crops, poultry and livestock.
A farmer might own the farmed land or might work as a laborer on land owned by others, but in most developed economies, a farmer is usually a farm owner, while employees of the farm are known as farm workers, or farmhands. However, in other older definitions a farmer was a person who promotes or improves the growth of plants, land or crops or raises animals (as livestock or fish) by labor and attention.
Ghana uses the older version of farmer, this is to prove that farmers are crucial in our lives.
Today being farmers day, many Ghanaians looked forward to knowing the best farmer in Ghana so as to appreciate him and thank him for his good work done for the year.
Most Ghanaians expected the best farmer to be awarded a tractor,, to enable him farm better or a car for easy transportation. To the shock of our lives, he was given a bicycle and a few pesticides.
Most of Ghanaians are still in shock wondering what happened?
Cocoa brings a lot of revenue to the country, can't we appreciate our farmers better?
Don't they deserve more than this?
Ghana must work on moving forward, we can't stay a developing country forever.
