Farmers New Trend…Felfies!

Steve--Felfie

The word “selfie” was one of Oxford Dictionary’s most annoying words of 2013.  But now there is a new phenomenon on the internet and the phase is going viral in a hurry.  It’s called “felfies” and they are pretty self-explanatory.  Felfies are farmer selfies.

The idea of felfies seems to have started with a farmer’s son from the United Kingdom.  William Wilson found a contest published in Irish Farmer Journal, asking for the best selfie taken on a farm.  Because the trend has become so popular, websites like farmingselfie.com and fellfies.com have been created just for felfies to be posted on what can be a fickle internet.

Wilson, who now runs farmingselfie.com, says that the felfies are fun to look at, but they also serve a pretty important purpose.  He says,

Self portraits from farmers around the world doing their best to keep everyone fed. We hope with this website we can put a face to the farmers who work to put food on your table.

 

To get an idea of what felfies look like, I had my husband, Steve, a dairy farmer from Parker, South Dakota, submit his version of a felfie, from right here in KIKN Country.  To prove that felfies are going viral, here are some felfies from around the world.
