Impact of COVID-19 on Agriculture

U.S. Farmers and Ranchers are #StillFarming

News / FBNews March 23, 2020

The coronavirus may have shut down Las Vegas, Disney World and nearly everything else, but farmers and ranchers across the country want you to know they’re still in their fields and barns, day-in and day-out. Whether they’re readying the soil for spring planting, tending to crops that have already sprouted, feeding and milking their dairy cows or looking after their cattle, chickens and pigs, farmers and ranchers take very seriously their commitment to fill grocery store shelves with safe, affordable food.

Search #StillFarming on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to find hundreds of posts like the video above from North Carolina Farm Bureau.

Or, share your own #StillFarming story. As part of a social media campaign, Farm Bureau is encouraging America’s farmers and ranchers to use #StillFarming to demonstrate that farmers and ranchers across the country are working diligently to provide a healthy and affordable food supply.
