The holiday season is the perfect time to recognize those that help put food on America’s table. November 20 is “Thank a Farmer” Day, a time to honor the 22 million Americans who work on farms or in farm-related jobs. Our farmers are extremely efficient – today the average U.S. farmer feeds 155 people a day, both in the United States and abroad. They achieve this while also using sustainable growing practices to preserve their cropland for the next generation of farmers. At Didion, we are proud to partner with our producers to help feed and fuel the world.
