Celebrating National Farm City Week

Did you know the week of Thanksgiving is always National Farm City Week?  As we gear up to spend time with family and enjoy a meal, it is the perfect time to reflect on exactly how agriculture stretches from the farm fields, to city tables and beyond.
 
Agriculture truly is one of the few industries that we could not live without.  From the food we eat, to the clothes we wear, to many different things in our home and that we use daily, agriculture helps to provide it all.  And it doesn’t stop there…you can also add the sports we like to watch or play, medicine and so much more. 
 
Just how much does agriculture impact?  Check out some of our infographics to see just what agriculture provides to each of us daily (you can click on any of the images to download a PDF):
