Food: A Farmer Isn’t a Farmer Without It – today on the RamZone blog

Food—it’s something that we think about, plan for and consume every day. But that simple word—food—has so much behind it.

I love that we have so many movements around food in our American culture today.

I am equally grateful for having the choice to run down to my local grocery store for a gallon of milk or even go to the mega-grocery store to take advantage of sales on larger quantities of food.

Have you ever sat down to a meal and really thought about where that food comes from? Or how it was produced differently today than in years past?

This is easy for me—a beef-raising gal working with corn farmers—to see. Still, there is such a detachment between these farmers and those who consume what they produce. A farmer isn’t a farmer if he has no one to produce food for.
