Many years ago, most of the U.S. population lived on farms and produced their own food to eat. Now, only 2 percent of the population produces food for the entire world. Readers will learn that farmers are responsible for the fruits, vegetables, and meat we buy in the grocery store, and the ingredients that go into many other things. They often use technology to help them produce these things. Some farmers research ways to keep their animals comfortable and healthy. Because of farmers, we can have fresh, nutritious food on our plates every day. Help your readers learn to appreciate the work behind what we enjoy.
