The theme for National Ag Day 2020 is “Food Brings Everyone to the Table” to be held on March 24, 2020. This event promotes the vital role agriculture has in our daily lives.
At the core, the mission of this day is to help consumers understand food and fiber production; appreciate the safe and abundant products from agriculture production; how agriculture contributes to the economy; and learn about career opportunities.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture is looking forward to hosting the fourth annual Kansas Agricultural Growth Summit on August 29, 2019. The Summit hosts Kansas farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses and invites them to work together in a collaborative setting to discuss growing agriculture in Kansas. Please join with agriculture leaders from across the state as ideas are shared about how we all can work together to expand opportunities for Kansas agriculture.
There is no cost to attend the event, but please register for an accurate meal count and to provide adequate materials for all attendees.
Speaking with one voice is the mission of EatWheat.org to speak for agriculture and farm production practices.
This campaign is driven by Kansas wheat farmers to help consumers learn where their food comes from and how it is grown by caring farmers. After one year of operation, EatWheat.org has reached millions of people. Read farmer stories; learn about wheat and the foods made with wheat; get inspired with wheat décor; and enjoy tasty recipes for any occasion. Follow them on a variety of social media platforms.
As school winds down, it’s time to plan activities for kids. So help them learn about agriculture through the Kansas State Fair Summer Ag Adventure Challenge!
