26 Signs You Grew Up On A Farm

And you’re damn proud of it.

You laugh in the face of Smart Cars.

2. You don’t know what it means to sleep in on the weekends.

What do you mean you didn’t wake up until 12?

3. You’re good at ignoring the angry honks when you’re driving a tractor down the road.

We’re just trying to feed people.

4. You know that no gym will ever give you the same workout as lifting hay bales does.

Sore for days.

5. If you’re a girl, your whole world would change depending on who the summer help was.

Please, please, please let it be that hottie in the grade above.

6. If you are a boy, your entire summer was spent in the fields. PRIME SEASON.

Waking up at 5, working until the job is done…or dark. Whichever comes first.

7. When it rains in the summer, you feel yourself start to panic.

This better not last long… We have hay down.

8. You learned early on not to get too attached to the livestock.

There is always work to do.

What do you mean by “limited yard space?” What is all this NOISE?!

17. Birth doesn’t really scare you because you have already witnessed several new lives being brought into the world.

And you’ve even helped pull the legs.

18. Your next door neighbor lived at least 2 miles away.

Anything closer than a mile is “right next door.”

19. All your friends had Wi-Fi before you did.

20. Your cell phone service was always questionable.

21. Your senior pictures probably looked like this.


22. And all the couples you know have pictures like this.
