Without farms, we wouldn't have food. Some farms put more effort and care into their product than others, but farms are the lifeblood of the food industry. With a lot of farmers struggling to find buyers for their products, the art of farming and the future of it is not guaranteed. But! With new interest, new crops, new funding and innovative ways to get things done, the farming industry doesn't have to be a dying one. The passion that goes into farming is what keeps it alive. Without that, crops would be limp and animals would be bored. Who wants that?
Did you know there are very specific types of farming? Did you also know that getting certified as an organic farm is a long and expensive process? Many of the farms you buy from may very well be organic, but they haven't wanted to invest in becoming officially certified. Just some ... food for thought. What kind of farm can you picture yourself working on? Maybe you want to cuddle up with some baby goats and nurture them all the way to adulthood. Or maybe you'd rather plant the seeds of your future lettuces and herbs for the best summer salads. Take this quiz and we can guess what kind of farm you work on!
