These days, everyone is talking about the advantages of knowing the farmers who grow your food. If you live in California, you’ll have a particular interest in the new website: Know a California Farmer.
This interactive farm and ranch experience is brought to you by hundreds of farmers throughout the nation’s number one agricultural state. They represent farms and ranches small and large, organic and traditional. They are the people who actually produce the food you eat and the plants you grow in your backyard.
On the website, California farmers and ranchers post personal photos, upload videos and write interesting blogs about real agriculture in California. Meet former roadie-turned-dairy-farmer Dino Giacomazzi as he shares his passion for the family business, which has been around since 1893. Read Jennifer Thompson’s blog where “talking grapes” is her second language and she will explain why California grapes make the best wine in the world.
Know A California Farmer is an interactive website brought to you by California farmers through our new California Agricultural Communications Coalition (CACC). The CACC is a group of over 120 farmer and rancher membership organizations dedicated to raising awareness about the outlook of multi-generational family farming in California – the nation’s leading agricultural state.
