A Farmer’s Thanksgiving Prayer

The harvest is done
The bins are full
Same can’t be said for my wallet
That’s for sure

But the bills are paid
The equipment is clean
Those who says farming isn’t fun
Don’t know what that means

It may not be worth it
To fight the bad luck and weather
But all that doesn’t seem to matter
When the family is back together

After living in the field
When it shines or when it pours
There’s no better place to be
Than through that front door

I have quite a lot
Considering how I make a living
My prayers have all been answered
But I’ll save one for Thanksgiving

Dear Lord God in Heaven
Not sure what I did
For a hard working wife
And a house full of kids

Don’t think for a second
I have what I deserve
But know that I’m Thankful
And for You, I’ll continue to serve

Amen

I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Licking County. Using the “its who you know” and “seize an opportunity” mantras, I started my farm broadcasting career right out of high school at WRFD-AM, thanks to my uncle Scott Higgins introducing me to then Farm Director Joe Cornely.

From there my radio path took me to Columbus country music station WHOK-FM, where I was known as Tyler Jacobs for over 12 years. Eventually I ended up right where I started and where I am most comfortable, back in farm broadcasting – using my real name!

I became a member of The Ohio Ag Net team in 2010 and I am proud to share the great stories about Ohio Agriculture, one broadcast at a time.

I currently live in Delaware County, where I am raising one boy and one girl, with my wife Angela. When I am not coaching my son’s baseball team or rehearsing for my role in my daughter’s dance recital (pictures if you want them), I am grilling, golfing and doing whatever may be on my “honey-do” list at any given moment.
