Farming is hard, y’all. But it’s also rewarding, whether you’ve just pulled a struggling calf from his mama or you’re eating the literal fruits of your labor. At the end of the day, you typically have something to show for the work you’ve put in. And while that work is certainly dirty and backbreaking, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. After all, farming involves lots of amusing animals. If you spend enough time around them (which, as a farmer, you will!), these creatures will certainly make you laugh. Cows can be silly and sweet. Pigs are often hilarious, rooting around in the mud and sounding off with funny grunts. What about when that silliness fails, though? Sometimes you just need a good joke.

And luckily we’ve gathered plenty of jokes for kids and adults alike. From jokes about spooky ghosts and their favorite season (Autumn, of course) to the vast amount of jokes about our favorite holiday (spoiler: it’s Christmas), there’s literally a joke for any occasion. Shoot. There’s even a giant chunk of jokes dedicated to bananas. You know another topic that seems to warrant its fair share of jokes? That’s right — farming, farmers, and farm life offer quite the breadth of subject matter one can giggle over. These jokes, puns, and even riddles are exactly what you need after a day on the farm. (Whether you’re growing those pumpkins or just picking them.)
