Thank You Farmers
National Farmer’s Day
October 12 is National Farmer’s Day, but we think farmers should be celebrated every day. Nowhere on earth is there a food system that is more efficient, affordable or safe than here in the USA. We are very, very lucky.
The California Leafy Greens Farming Community
At the LGMA we take special pride in celebrating farmers. The people who grow leafy greens in California are pretty remarkable. We know this because we work with them every day and we see the commitment they have to feeding the world and producing leafy greens and other vegetables that are not only nutritious but safe.
Since not everyone has the privilege of knowing a California leafy greens farmer, we thought we’d introduce you to a few of them. Below are two video interviews with real California farmers sharing some of the things that they, and other LGMA members, do to keep your food safe.
We hope you’ll like it and share it. You can do so using #NationalFarmers Day.
