Did the Beatles Write the Ultimate Farm Anthem?

Do you sing while you work?  I do.  When no one’s around and something really great has happened, I even break into the Hallelujah chorus.

Contributor Forrest Pritchard sings while he works too and you’ll love the way he turns old favorites into farmer favorites.  Check it out here.

AND in case you don’t recognize all the tunes, here’s an iTunes playlist where you can listen to parts of them and download them if you’re so inclined.  (If you don’t have iTunes on your computer, you can download it.  And if you don’t want to do that, maybe you have a friend who can hum all the songs to you.)

Have you got additions to the playlist?  Let us know!

GainingGroundSmallCoverForrest’s new book, Gaining Ground, has just been named to the ten “Best Summer Books 2013” by Publisher’s Weekly.  Check back next week to get a sneak preview of the book’s first chapter.  It comes out on May 21 and you can pre-order it now.  We think this would be a great year to put a book about farming, by a farmer onto the best seller list.  For only $11.78 you can help.  What do you think?

Like Gaining Ground on Facebook to get updates on the release, and share positive messages about the future of farming.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
