Thank Your Farmers

“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” -Henry David Thoreau

Give Thanks to Farmers For:

    • Diverse & nutritious food options
    • Agricultural awareness
    • Transmission of knowledge
    • Transparency
    • Producer-consumer relationships
    • Strengthening rural & local economies
      • A 2011 USDA study finds that produce growers selling onto local and regional markets generate 13 full time operator jobs per $1 million in revenue earned, for a total of 61,000 jobs in 2008.
    • Improving healthy food access
    • Invaluable experience
      • In the early 1900’s, 40% of our population lived on farms; today, 1% does.
