Of Course Jordy Nelson is a Farmer!

Jordy Nelson is a farmer

ESPN the Mag is running a profile of Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson this week, which focuses heavily on his offseason activity — farming.

Most Packers fans probably know all about this, but in case you don’t, Jordy is from rural Kansas. And what do people do in rural Kansas? They farm. Same as people used to do in rural Wisconsin.

In the offseason, Nelson returns to his 4,000-acre family farm and helps out in the fields and with the cattle.

“I probably identify more as a farmer [than a football player],” he says. “Around here, I’m just the farm kid that they have always known.”

Aw, shucks!

Not too long ago, the 700 Club — yes, that still exists — did this interview with Jordo about his farming and footballing.

    Down to earth, blue collar, no ego or diva complex. Just like Favre.
