How many of you knew that National Ag Day was last week?
National Ag Day is a day to celebrate our local farmers who help feed the world.
The post below this shows a photo stating every farmer feeds 155 people. That is a lot of people for 1 person! We provide safe, high quality food. With the use of today’s technology we can keep prices low when it comes to putting food on the table for your family.
Think of all the products that you use on a daily basis that a farmer had his hand in.
- Ethanol Fuel
- Frozen Pizza
- Hush Puppies
- Shoe Polish
- Cooking Oils
This is just a sampling of items that farmers have their hands in with their products such as corn, soybeans, wheat, and cotton! We often don’t realize just how much farming impacts our daily lives. Believe me when the best thing we can do is support the farmers growing the products we use every day, on our own soil.
I urge you to take a minute to thank a farmer this week.
