Truly salt-of-the-earth men and women, farmers offer so many benefits to the country. They cultivate healthy produce, meat, dairy, wheat, and cotton—all things we use every single day.
That’s why it’s so tough to watch many family-owned farms having a hard time competing in the corporate agribusiness industry. They’re encountering dynamics affecting profitability and operational efficiency that are much different than they were even a few generations ago.
Fortunately, we can all play a part in supporting our local farmers. We can build stronger connections by making them our first stop for things like vegetables, meat, eggs, poultry, pickled goods, jams, and other items. Not only will this help them thrive, but we’ll also benefit from cleaner, non-modified foods in our diets on a daily basis.
Farmers and small businesses in rural communities teach us how to care for the soil and grow our own produce. We’ll show you how to make the most of these good old-fashioned tips and homegrown goods. Let’s all thrive together!
