At the root of the food system are the farmers and farm workers who grow food and food processors who manufacture our food. Farmers and the people who work on farms guard our soil, protect our open spaces, and nurture the seeds that become the food we eat. Farmers are charged with keeping our land healthy to sustain future generations. Food processors touch much of the food we eat and have a strong impact on the integrity of that food.
