No Farms. No Foods. The message is simple and couldn't be more clear — America's farms and ranches provide an unparalleled abundance of fresh, healthy and local food, but they are rapidly disappearing.
91 percent of America's fruit and 78 percent of our vegetables are grown near metro regions, where they are in the path of development. And every minute of every day, we lose an acre of farm and ranch land. That's why supporting local food and farms is more important than ever!
