Agriculture: Food for Life • National Ag Week
This week, we recognize farmers and ranchers. Farmers and ranchers are the ultimate unsung heroes. They quietly go about their business of producing the bounty consumers hardly give a thought to when they stroll through the fully stocked aisles of the grocery store – not to mention the wood that goes in our homes, the fiber in our clothes and the fuel in our vehicles. Farmers and ranchers are so good at what they do, the average consumer has no idea how much goes into it. National Ag Week and Ag Day are about educating consumers about where their food, fiber and fuel come from, so maybe they’ll give it a thought the next time they walk down that grocery aisle.
Happy National Ag Week to all the hard-working farmers and ranchers out there.
