American Farmland is now sending their free bumper sticker ‘No Farms No Food’ to Canada. American Farmland is an association that supports and protects farm and ranch land and works to improve the economic viability of agriculture. This is such an important cause for the United States, Canada and, well, everywhere! Surfing through this site you’ll find great reminders why it is so important to support our local food growers.
This hits home for me right now because, though I know it’s small potatoes (no pun intended), my family grew our first vegetable and fruit garden this year. Just last night we harvested our apples (the tree was mature in the yard when we started our garden :-)) and spent two hours making (very yummy) applesauce. Every body was tired and ready to order Dominos after about half an hour which was a great headway into a very important discussion about how hard farmers and food processors work to ensure that we have affordable and healthy food on our tables. All this combines to remind me to attend my local farmers market this weekend.
