How much do people know about agriculture?
That’s what the America’s Farmers campaign wanted to find out as they took to the streets of New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago to ask consumers just how much they know about farming.
Their responses and reactions to agricultural facts shed light on a population disconnected from food production but also show their gratitude towards farmers whose dedication and hard work keep food on their tables.
