Did you have breakfast? Supper or lunch yesterday?
Thank a farmer!
No matter what was on your plate, in your bowl, or poured from your blender — a farmer was involved.
But I got it at the store?
Let’s follow the chain back, shall we. The store got it from a wholesaler and it most likely arrived on a truck. The wholesaler got it from a grower (farmer), in the case of fresh fruits and vegetables. Or they got it from a processor in the case of meats, dairy products, grain products, and specialty items such as sugar and coffee. So go back one more link — there’s the farmer, or grower, or fisherman — selling to the processor or cannery.
I’ll say it again — Thank A Farmer!
