5. Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food [Macromedia Flash Player]
With all of the talk about the demise of the family farm, the United
States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has decided to step in to create
this campaign to inform citizens about their own local farmers. The
basic idea behind this initiative is to "create new economic
opportunities by better connecting consumers with local producers." On
their homepage, visitors can check out profiles of farmers in their area
and learn about how support for such individuals helps strengthen rural
communities and protects natural resources. The "Promote Healthy Eating"
area is quite useful, as it contains links to other sites that address
community food projects and a farmers market promotion program. The
"Sights and Sounds" area includes images and videos from the USDA's
campaign along with farmers talking about their work.
