HENRY GOLDENBOY FARMERS ED.Item #: 15085
They stand at the head of a line extending back a hundred generations; men, women and families who have coaxed the bounty of the earth from the rocky soil of New England, the vast fertile prairies of the west, the lush green valleys of central California, and every corner of the continent from sea to shining sea. Whether they labor with sweat and muscle or work with modern computerized machinery and advanced degrees, the essence of their lives remains as it’s been since our ancestors ceased searching for food and settled the land.They rise in the darkness before dawn, toil ceaselessly through the hours of light, and seldom finish until long after nightfall. Season after season they endure, strumming the rhythms of the natural world to bringing forth the harvest. We salute the American Farmer with this tribute edition featuring detailed scenes of farming life etched into the receiver and splashed with gold, with additional images lovingly carved into the American Walnut stock. It’s a .22 caliber work of art to carry, use and display with pride, carrying our message of heartfelt gratitude to a hundred generations, past and present, who feed our world. On the Stock: The old fashioned barn first seen the left side of the receiver cover has served generations of farmers and now has a silo and tractor in place of the old plow. An American flag is proudly displayed above the barn door. The carving is hand painted to emphasize the red of the barn and the colors of the flag. Right Side: The text, American Farmers Feeding the World, has been etched on a swirling banner and washed in 24kt gold. Decorative scrollwork and plant-like elements complete the design. The left side of receiver cover features an iconic image of a farmer working behind his horse-drawn plow with his barn in the background. The cameo has 24kt. gold selective plate and the front and rear panels have the unique agricultural scroll pattern.
