In one of our posts last week, we mentioned how more and more, consumers are interested in knowing where their food comes from. And, consumers trust producers to tell them about their food more than anyone else. The USDA recently launched the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said, “Reconnecting consumers and institutions with local producers will stimulate economies in rural communities, improve access to healthy, nutritious food for our families, and decrease the amount of resources to transport our food.” To learn more, view the press release distributed by the USDA or visit the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food website.
