No Farms No Food

No Farms No Food

It's pretty simple: if we don't have farms, we're not going to have food. All of us count on America's farms and ranches to provide fresh, healthy and local food—but our farms and ranches are rapidly disappearing.

Did you know that we don’t produce enough fresh fruits and vegetables for everyone to eat a balanced and nutritious diet? In fact, it is estimated that we need another 13 million acres of farmland growing fruits and vegetables in this country just for Americans to meet the minimum daily requirement of fruits and vegetables set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  (direct quote from American Farmland Trust Website)

Don't know what to give that favorite person as a gift?

I would much rather have my neighbor growing my fruit thanhaving be shipped from another country
