At today’s “Future of Food: Food Security in the 21st Century” event, Senator John Tester (D) of Montana mentioned that people are disconnected from where their food comes from, as most have never had the opportunity to visit a farm.
Dairy farmers want to help people understand where food comes from and the important role farmers play in helping to nourish healthy people with nutrient-rich dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt. They also understand that building stronger links to food and the farmers who produce it will help ensure a healthy future for the next generation.
