Happy National Ag Day!
Today we officially celebrate American agriculture. This year’s theme is “Food brings everyone to the table.” Every meal starts on the farm!
Food is such a personal thing. Each of us makes daily decisions about what we put in our body to nourish and fuel us. And because we’re all making those choices, everyone has an opinion about it.
But those opinions should never detract from some important truths. We live in a time of abundance! We have the most widely available, consistent, safe, and nutritious food supply ever experienced in human history. While there are still those who go hungry, most of us suffer the opposite problem of having too much food.
So on National Ag Day let’s appreciate that! Let’s appreciate the bounty that comes from American farms and lands on our dinner tables.
