The Brother

Joe - to Add/Give or to Increase

To add/give or to increase is the Hebrew definition of Joe.  That sums up my brother to a T. He is one of the most giving people I know.  
Joe and his cattle.  They are a top priority in his life.

In my opinion to be a good farmer and care taker of the land you need to be a giver.  You need to give of yourself, your time, your faith and your family.  Joe is the fifth generation to raise cattle and farm Brewer Farms.  He has learned the hard way that farming is not always easy and there are days you ask yourself if you made the right decisions.

 But I know at the end of the day, when you see the look in his eyes - when there is new calf born or he got a field planted - that he is where he needs to be.  I guess to sum it up I am proud to say that he is my brother and that he is a FARMER!


  1. I loved learning a little bit about your brother and I love the photo of him and his favorite cow! That shows that he is a fun guy too!

    1. I love the photo of him under Stace. This pose is done all the time! He just loves that cow!
