Indiana Farmers Union shared an event. ...

Farmer Roundtable

August 28, 2017, 6:00pm - August 28, 2017, 7:00pm

We're hosting a Farmer Roundtable to help communicate young farmers' needs to our policy makers. Senator Donnelly is on the Agriculture Committee, which means he helps write the Farm Bill. HYFC is hosting his Agricultural Liaison, Kent Yeager, on Aug 28, 6pm, at Nightfall Farm in southern Indiana. The goal is to share our needs, concerns, and ideas as young farmers, and help push for policy that leads to young farmer success. All young farmers are welcome, but we'd love an RSVP so we can plan (we may have to share parking spots with pigs). Email us at info@hoosieryfc.org to RSVP. We're hoping to have a food truck or food of some kind, so check Facebook for updates!

Do you like BLTs as much as we do? The next time you make yourself a sandwich, think about the hardworking farmers and ranchers who grew those delicious ingredients. As you'll see in our latest Farmer's Share, farmers and ranchers receive less than 16 cents out of every dollar that you spend on food. Here's how your BLT breaks down: -Bread: For every dollar you spend on bread, farmers only receive 3 cents. -Lettuce: When you spend a dollar on lettuce, the farmer gets 13.6 cents of that. -Tomato: $1 worth of tomatoes equals only 13 cents in the farmer's pocket. -Bacon: Just 15 cents of your dollar of bacon goes to your farmer. Please share this infographic with family and friends to help us spread the word, and comment below to let us know what you think!
