Friday Fun Ag Fact: One Farmer Feeds 155 People

Did you know that one farmer in the United States feeds 155 people? Isn’t that amazing?

Food doesn’t appear by magic on store shelves or on our plates, it is produced by the labor and sweat of some of our nation’s hardest workers – farmers and ranchers.

And in order to continue to feed the world, more food will need to be produced in the next 50 years than has been grown in the past 10,000 years…combined. However, there’s no doubt our farmers and agriculture researchers will rise to this new challenge as they have met countless other challenges in the past.
