This is National AG Week which coincides with the first day of Spring. The idea is to recognize and celebrate Agriculture. It seems consumers today do not understand where their food comes from. Well, it comes from the grocery store, but how does it get to the grocery store? When my generation was growing up there was more of a connection to the Farm. Those that were growing up in town had many friends and classmates that did live on a farm. The point is they had a better understanding because they likely had been on a farm, or by just talking to their friends they knew what was done on a farm. Today, if you go into a rural community classroom of thirty students, maybe only one or two students live on a farm! By the way, Thank You to Art at the Reliance Bank in Faribault for bringing in the cake to celebrate National Ag Week. It even had the right colored TRACTOR on it!
