Celebrating the Farmers that Feed the World

“We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” This Native American Proverb describes just how important it is to take care of the land we have. One other group that knows the importance of this is farmers and agriculturalists. They work hard to provide the world with nutritious and affordable food, fuel, and quality fiber, while sustaining their natural resources year after year. Because for them, it is a lifestyle, a passion, and a vocation they proudly pass down from generation to generation.

On National Ag Day, we celebrate those farmers and families who work every day to keep land in good condition, grow a bountiful crop, and continue to learn how to improve their operation. Their passion and dedication are unparalleled.

Farmers and ranchers all over the world share the common goal of bringing families together to consume nutritious food. According to a study by the New York Times, the average American family still sits down for dinner on average five evenings per week. These meals look like laughter, conversation, and consuming nutritious foods. In today’s world, this is becoming more and more important to families. As society pulls people in different directions, mealtime continues to be a staple by bringing everyone to the table.



To grow this food for other families, farmers ultimately sacrifice time with theirs. But they do so knowing that they are contributing to something bigger. Farmers spend countless hours ensuring a safe, healthy harvest so that they can provide the best food possible. They don’t just work until the sun goes down; they work until the job gets done. Any day of the week, a farmer is working to improve the efficiency of their operation, creating a better world for the rest of society.

Over the last two years, farmers have persevered through uncertain times by continuing to provide essential food and resources. Even in the toughest of times, food continues to connect the world by bring everyone to the table. This National Ag Day, we hope you’ll join us in honoring the farmers of today and tomorrow that bring our families to the table.
