Some Credit Where It's Due - Thanks To Our Farmers

This is somewhat off topic for our blog but still relevant as we have farming in our families.

With all of the struggles we are facing with the changes in our own industry farming has been going through an upheaval for years now.

The loss of family farms across Canada and beyond has been an ongoing trend in the industry. And, its unfortunate as we all know that a family run business will, for the most part, produce their products and services a lot differently than the big corporate ones do.

This is also true of the small business IT solution provider. So, we share something in common. :)

Most of the food that crosses our table comes from local, regional, national, and international farms.

So, we say to our farmers, "Thanks for all of the hard work as it tastes great!"

It's a long weekend here in Canada! Happy break to our Canuck readers!
