Life on the farm

WHO gets to see animals pasture near the roads or farmers harvest sugarcanes?

How about a glimpse of sunrise that gives hope to everyone who gets to witness the breaking of dawn? These are the simple experiences and scenery on the farm.

Under the new normal, this is currently how simple enjoyment is captivated by some people when they spend their day safely and nicely.

Before the Covid-19 knocked us down to our knees, we cared less to appreciate the unsophisticated lifestyle in the fields.

But now, we get to greet sugarcane farmers with a simple hello while they work under the sun.

These farmers don't get much recognition despite the fact that their contribution to the monocrop industry of the province plays vital to the economy of our beloved province.

The farmers live the simplest ways. They eat together while sitting on the sugarcanes, sharing pleasantries while sweating and with skin blacken by the scorching heat of the sun.

They are the very people who are part of the production of sugar which we consume when we have our coffee and our desserts, among others.

I just want to share their moment as to how they do their usual chore.

The scenery makes life on the farm amazing.
