I Love Farmers

Last month, a friend of a friend began a new blog. She is a fellow lover of farmers and is sharing her journey in eating clean foods. She posted a link yesterday that I love! It highlighted a small grassroots operation that was begun by a group of college students and their professor. Their goal is to educate and communicate to young consumers how important the American Farmer is. This is just a piece of how they feel.

We may be young, but we are not stupid.
We love farmers. They feed our soul. Together we are working to help our generation understand the importance of knowing where our food comes from and who produced it.
We’re not your typical “who cares” kind of young people from the Millennial Generation. Sure, we all have cell phones and we text like crazy. We have iPods and spend way too much time on Facebook and MySpace, but we care about our planet. We care about our country. We care about the American family farmer.
Few of our friends know how their food is produced. We think that is sad. And, really it is kind of scary. If we are not careful, we will become dependent on other countries to provide our food. That is not good. Who knows what goes on in other countries when it comes to growing our food? We have an idea, and it too is not good.

Take a look at their campaign when you have a chance.
