Salute the Backbone of our Nation

July 1, 2020
American Farmer

As we celebrate Independence Day and commemorate the Declaration of Independence of the United States, let’s salute the backbone of our nation – the American Farmer.

In a proclamation on National Agriculture day, President Trump said the following:
Since our Nation’s earliest days, farming communities have been a bedrock of our society.  In a letter to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson famously stated that agriculture “is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness.”  As our Nation continues to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, we pay tribute to the unbeatable strength of America’s agricultural producers as they once again answer the call to feed our country and the world.  We salute and honor the men and women who contribute daily to our national prosperity.

United States agricultural food and fiber production has increased significantly over the past century, while the amount of resources used to produce those goods has largely stayed the same.  This incredible productivity is due to innovations that have propelled the American model of agriculture.  Americans feed their families with the safest, healthiest, and most affordable food in the world.  Thanks to the efficiency of our farmers and ranchers, our rural communities are stronger and more resilient.

Across our country, farming families and communities demonstrate the timeless American values of hard work, perseverance, and stewardship of the land.  Just as they have for centuries, our farmers provide the foundation of a national economic supply chain that is critical to our national security and prosperity.  

Happy Independence Day, from Superior Ag!
