April Letters From Subscribers

I was excited to receive the new Delta Ag Journal.  I receive many ag type publications, but not one that is solely Delta focused like this.  It is rewarding to see this publication share the good works on all things related to agriculture taking place right here in our Mississippi Delta.

I want to thank Delta Ag Journal for featuring my family in the January edition. We have received many compliments on this outstanding write up. I am so proud to see many “small voices” being heard and appreciated by this wonderful company. Thank you again Delta Ag Journal for everything you do and continue to do for Mississippi!

I would like to congratulate the entire staff of the Delta Ag Journal on their first edition published in January. I want to also thank you for the great articles and editorial content you have featured on ag pilots in the Delta.  And most of all, thank you for giving Cleveland Air Service the opportunity to advertise in your inaugural edition. People are talking around the water cooler about this great magazine and everyone is already looking forward to see what the April edition will feature.

My wife, loves the recipe section and I don’t mind being her taste tester,  especially when I know the  recipes come with products that are grown in and around the Delta.

Best wishes on your new publication and keep up the fantastic job you all are doing to support our Delta farmers.

Being recognized in the first edition of the Delta Ag Journal was very humbling.  The views we often find ourselves scurrying past, on a daily basis during farming season, literally took our breath away when the magazine was delivered to us!  The words chosen to describe our family… and or Twin Ridge Farms… literally danced through the article, like the crops during a light late summer breeze.  This Delta Ag Journal is going to shine a light on a profession that truly takes “loving what you do” to a new level.  Having a farm is nothing if you aren’t a “farmer” at heart. This journal and our article shows the author’s love for their assignment.

My family’s article, written by Mark Stowers, reminded me of the quote by Romare Bearden… “We look too much to museums. The sun coming up in the morning is enough.” The sunset pictures taken on a windy and crisp fall day captured our crops, grain bins, old worn out wood, and equipment with the light that only comes from a beautiful God given Delta sunset.

Their publication gave a true glimpse into our family with dreams of “making it work” farming in today’s world.  Starting our farm “from scratch” has meant literally that! Good days and bad days, good years and tears have gotten us this far.  I love how the article nailed my husband as being the hard worker-who is always trying to better himself as a farmer.  The boys and I chip in and help when we can and pray for Twin Ridge and its family daily.  Your article helped shine a light on what our family stands for…hard work, supporting each other, and never forgetting where you came from and what your goals are.    

Just FYI—Mark Stowers and Rory Doyle—the framed article given to Nat brought tears to a man we are blessed to call “Daddy Nat” on a daily basis.

Thanks again for capturing the life of my family in writing and through pictures.

We will end with another old saying….. “Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out”.     

The best of wishes to such a talented staff at the Delta Ag Journal and to all the farm/ag families in 2018 and years ahead,
