It is pitiful how ignorant the public in general is about their food supply.

Perpetually happy!
That's sad :(

Up here there are billboards everywhere:
"Thank A Farmer"
"No Farmers, No Future"

It isn't as big of an issue up here...we KNOW that life depends on our farmers. I hope it soon improves for you all down there.

PorkPal, our local FarmCredit Services had bumper stickers with that on it. Quite a few years ago, so don't imagine any around anymore. LOL

Around here all people can see is how much all the farmland would be worth to developers. Take the land, build bigger roads so that there can be more houses to sell to people who want to live in the country but make it like the city with lights and pavement and deed restrictions... rant, Rant, RANT!!!

Appalling sentiment!

We need the security of a strong local food supply. Imports are for occasional luxuries, not staples.
