August in the Midwest marks the beginning of a highly anticipated season — sweet corn season! — where freshly husked corn becomes the star of the show at farm stands across the Corn Belt. Farming is a tough job, and climate and economic change is making it increasingly more challenging. So this month we’ve curated a “stationer’s ode to farmers”, to celebrate agriculture and thank farmers everywhere.
There’s no bigger celebration of agriculture than the County Fair, so for this collection we included the new State & County Fair stamps, farm animal envelope seals, and adorable greeting cards by AMY HEITMAN, which were inspired by her own local county fair.
