Mission Statement

Neither greed or ambition impels us to observe the world as philosophical farmers. We feel nothing  other than a true human love, to relieve all inquisitive persons, from all the painstaking efforts, which can sometimes require a period of several years. As we ourselves  know from experience, how nice it is when a good friend shows an advantage, which saves us great difficulties and time than if we had to find it out ourselves.


With this trust we,  the Philosophical farmers are willing to serve our highly esteemed public service at all times.
