IT’S “NATIONAL FARMER’S DAY”- DAY TO HONOR FARMERS: Fun Farming Facts for Story

A recent survey by the Undeniably Dairy campaign found that 51% of Americans questioned would be interested in moving to a farm if they could.

The survey also found that:

  • 80% of people interested in meeting with a farmer to discuss farming
  • 7 out of 10 think it’s important to get to know the farmer who make the food they eat
  • 73% view locally sourced food as very or extremely appealing

Friday, October 12th has been designated as National Farmer’s Day – a day for all Americans to pay tribute to U.S. farmers. From very early in American culture, a dairy farmer’s endless hard work has been an example to all of us and on Friday, we can all thank these hard-working men and women for their contributions to our economy.

If you can’t make it to a local dairy farm in your community to personally thank a farmer for the hard work they do to supply us with some of our favorite foods – like cheese, ice cream, milk and yogurt – you can use #NationalFarmersDay to post your message on social media.
