08 Dec AgGrad Gift Guide: Best Agriculture Gifts in 2016
Which Agriculture Gifts are on your wishlist?
By now, I’m sure you have seen a number of different posts on Social Media with gifts for techies, millennials, or mom and dad. Have you thought about your favorite farmer or the person that loves Agriculture?
Over the year our team at AgGrad has had the opportunity to meet a lot of great people as well as learn a lot about what the Future of Agriculture has in store for us. Here are a few ideas that we have thought you would enjoy.
Today we surpassed 10,000 downloads of our podcast, The Future of Agriculture. And in keeping with the theme of our podcast I thought we should start with a cool tech product.
The first Agriculture gift is FarmBot Genesis. Farmbot Genesis is literally drag and drop farming. From your computer, tablet or phone you will be able to control all aspects of your garden. Planting, watering and weeding can be set for automation or you can take control and show it off when your friends come over.
Ok, I’ll admit, this is something way out of my budget, but come on, who hasn’t had a great looking garden in their backyard die from not enough water or overgrown with weeds because of a summer vacation? But wouldn’t it be great to turn your Facebook Farmville game into real life?
What do Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Alisan Porter and Jessie James Decker have in common? They all love Western & Co. Hailey Nelson, the owner/designer of the Western & Co has created an amazing line of retail for all of those that love “Americana, 70’s vintage, honky tonk, 90’s country and desert west.” All tees are purchased from a US based manufacturing company and screen printed at a local mom and pop shop in Northern California.
Shop Western & Co. – Use ‘AGGRAD10’ for a 10% savings on all Tees.
I love the stocking stuffer gifts. It is always fun to see how many personalized presents you can cram into that red stocking. This year I’m grabbing a few stickers from our friends at My Job Depends on Ag. If you haven’t heard Eric Wilson, Cofounder or MJDOA, on the podcast you should check it out.
Who doesn’t love baked goods? Or chocolate? If you don’t have the time or ability to make something yourself, go visit the local farmers market to see what they have to offer. You can always find something that your Aggie will love.
A personal favorite of mine is Morgan’s of California. I have been going to Morgan’s of California for over 30 years. Many of those years were spent using the playground on the property and drinking fresh orange juice.

For those that love the cowboy/western decor, you will love Bluestem Mercantile. Their style is unique and will be a great addition to any house.
We know that there are a lot of great Agriculture gifts out there. If you have some to share, please leave them in the comments.
