thankful 4 farmers

Thankful has launched the Thankful4Famers initiative, bridging the gap between brands, consumers and agricultural communities in a unified movement to demonstrate support for farming and rural communities around the world.

And raising funds to create sustainable transformational impact.

about this initiative:

“once in your life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman. every single day, three times a day, you need a farmer”

The Thankful4Farmers initiative aims to celebrate the important and significant contribution of farmers and agriculture to both the economy and culture around the world.


Celebrating the incredible diversity and quality of produce and sharing the stories of those who produce it for us.

Thankful4Farmers is a collaborative initiative bringing together industries, brands, influencers and consumers in a united effort to raise awareness and generate revenue to support sustainable agriculture and regional communities.

Farmers across the globe are facing unprecedented challenges; climatic conditions, reduced investment, falling commodity prices and raising tariffs and evolving consumer expectations.


All of which is causing many to lose farms that have been in their families for generations. As a result, the global farming community is also facing a mental health crisis.


Thankful4Farmers is igniting a conversation to amplify awareness and generate on-going sustainable funding to create transformational impact in regional and rural communities.
