Have you Eaten?

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!

This proud farmer marks the spot for a local summer market.
