National Agriculture Day is March 25 this year, and National Agriculture Week will be celebrated in the days surrounding Agriculture Day. The annual event is an outstanding opportunity to recognize the contributions Missouri's farmers, farm families and agribusinesses make to each of our lives and to thank the men and women of Missouri agriculture.
The team at the Missouri Department of Agriculture is looking forward to celebrating next week, and we hope that you'll join us in some way, whether thanking a farmer personally, trying meat, produce, grains or dairy from a local farmer, or sharing some of the great successes Missouri agriculture has seen with your loved ones.
And just in case you need some inspiration on that third item, Missouri Farmer Today has a great article in the current issue highlighting a few of the reasons to celebrate Missouri Agriculture. Find the article online at https://www.missourifarmertoday.com/.
