To see rich land eaten away by erosion, to stand by as continual cultivation on sloping fields wears away the best soil, is enough to make a good farmer sick at heart.
      - Henry A. Wallace

Blessed be agriculture! if one does not have too much of it.
      - Charles Dudley Warner,
        My Summer in a Garden (Preliminary)

I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares.
      - George Washington

The farmers are the founders of civilization.
      - Daniel Webster

When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.
      - Daniel Webster, Remarks on Agriculture
         (p. 457)

But let the good old corn adorn
  The hills our fathers trod;
    Still let us, for his golden corn,
      Send up our thanks to God!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Corn-Song

Heap high the farmer's wintry hoard!
  Heap high the golden corn!
    No richer gist has Autumn poured
      From out her lavish horn!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, The Corn-Song
