COVID-19 AND AG: WHY FARMERS NEED YOUR SUPPORT, NOW MORE THAN EVER
By AUSTIN GELLINGS, AEM Agriculture Services Manager
In periods of uncertainty, it can be difficult to find any sort of constants or norms. However, during these times that we’re all living through currently, there’s one constant that has not changed. That constant is farming.
Life on the farm never stops. Crops still need to be planted, animals still need to be cared for, and people still need to eat. While farmers can often be the forgotten part of the food supply chain, now – perhaps more than ever – it’s clear they’re still here. And they deserve to be recognized on the same level as the amazing men and women who are keeping other essential parts of our lives going through their work in healthcare, grocery stores, law enforcement, and so many other areas.
