Agriculture maybe one of the oldest professions known to mankind, but today's farmers aren't stuck in the Stone Age. From viral YouTube channels to popular farming podcasts, it's no surprise that farmers have taken to social media too. Thank a farmer on National Farmer's Day--October 12th--by scrolling through some of the top farming Instagrams or “Farmstagrams.”
