Dairy Rappers Delight


Absolutely adoring this video. Dairy farmers promoting sustainable farming practices while making farming chic, modern, and especially gorgeous (because, hey, that's how it is in real life, right?????).

I'm especially fond of Ms. Exceptionally Lovely Farmer when she raps "In my wax coat and boots, I'm proper Farmer Giles; Now look, you urban folks have stole our style." So true. I love how farm clothing and gear have become fashionable in city settings. In so doing, it seems to validate the entire renewed interest in agriculture and nature and food cycles and systems and hand-crafted, handmade, home-spun modes of living so prevalent today.

For those of you curious about the lyrics (which are both hilarious and yet simultaneously quite inspiring, as
Yeo Valley is clearly making serious strides in their attempt to tread lightly on the soil they toil), check out this link.

Big up your chest!

The Dairy Board of Ontario did a similar promo a few years ago
