The new Food and Farm Facts book, map and pocket guide are now available.
“Food and Farm Facts provides the opportunity to share the story of agriculture – how and why farmers and ranchers do what they do to produce food, fiber and renewable fuel. I hope it also puts into perspective how blessed we are to be Americans,” said Foundation Chairman Zippy Duvall, who also serves as president of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Food and Farm Facts helps answer the questions “Where does our food come from and who grows it?” by exploring topics about agriculture in the U.S. The 32-page, full-color book features updated facts and easy-to-read infographics that can be used in a variety of ways to help increase agricultural literacy. The book would be a valuable resource in the classroom, at fairs and events, for student leadership organizations and on social media.
Check out What’s Inside for a sneak peek at page titles of the book organized by section (Consumers, Modern Farmers, Trade & Economics, Environment and Production). New in this edition of the book is information on how to reduce food waste, top food holidays celebrated in America and floriculture production.
