Farms and Food for Kids | Learn how food comes from a farm to your table

Did you know that most of the food you eat started out at a farm? There is a whole system in place to get your food from its origin at a farm to your plate on the table. In Farms and Food for kids, you will learn all about this process and discover some fun facts about what your food goes through as it travels from farm to you.

A farm is usually a large area of land used to grow crops or raise animals for the production of food. Farms are the main source of food for people all over the world. Farmers are the people who work on or own and manage a farm. Most farms are specialized today, meaning that they focus on one or a few select crops or animals. Without farms, many people in the world would go hungry.

So how does food get from a farm to you? It goes through several steps, and this video talks about some of them specifically. First, farmers prepare the land by turning the soil with a plow. Then the seeds get planted by a seeder, and the crops get watered. Sometimes, farmers will also spray fertilizers to help the crops grow or pesticides to keep pests from ruining the crops.

Once the crops are ready, they are harvested and then stored. Farmers then transport the goods to wholesalers like restaurants and retailers. Finally, retailers place the food on the shelves for us to buy them. Sometimes, food goes through processing plants that help that food last longer. Other times, smaller farms can sell their food at farmers markets directly to consumers!
