Take a moment to think where your food comes from – the very root of where it began!

In a generation focused on the fast-paced hustle and bustle that our culture seems to thrive on, many of us forget where the food on the very plate in front of us comes from.

In honor of National Agriculture Day I would like to take a moment to thank something we all get the privilege to be a part of – farming.

You might be thinking, “Well, I live in an apartment building in the middle of a city… I’m not a part of agriculture!”
