Celebrate National Ag Day by supporting Delaware’s farmers

Posted

Farmers and ranchers work every day of the year to make sure food is available to Americans across the country. But one day is set aside to celebrate those efforts — National Ag Day.

Now in its 50th year, the annual celebration is set for Tuesday.

“Ag Day is very special. We really do work hard to make sure our food is safe and plentiful, and that agriculture becomes more sustainable every year,” Delaware Farm Bureau executive director Don Clifton said. “We hope Delawareans take this day to thank their local farmers and support farming businesses by purchasing local farm products, sharing their news on social media or planning a trip to an agritourism site.”

Anyone can register for a virtual Ag Day event focused on this year’s theme, “Growing a Climate for Tomorrow,” at agday.org.

The theme focuses on sustainability and how farmers work to create a better tomorrow through their agricultural initiatives.
