No Farms, No Food

On occasion, I tap into a news article floating out in cyberspace. Although this particular read takes us across the pond, its content is relevant to our own farming industry in the United States.
It places a keen eye on the poverty levels of farmers in the United Kingdom. Unless we know farmers firsthand, few of us ever understand our food producers’ dilemmas. Many farmers in the U.S. and abroad subsidize their income with other work. Unfortunately, this is a reoccurring theme and unless we pay attention to it, we will continue to lose farmland and the valuable resource it provides us – our food. The title of today’s blog, ‘No Farms, No Food’ is a bumper sticker that many local farm owners stick on the back of their pickups. Ralph Waldo Emerson got it when he said, “The first farmer was the first man. All historic nobility rests on the possession and use of land.” Post your comments and thoughts. Annie
