OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Today is a celebration of one of America's oldest industries.
October 12 is a perfect time to honor the hardworking farmers across the country as harvest season comes to an end.
To celebrate National Farmer's Day you can buy fruits and vegetables from a local farmer's market or you can also visit a nearby farm for a fun fall activity and thank a farmer in person.
Leaders across the country are also paying tribute to an industry that is crucial to our region.
On National Farmers Day, we honor those who provide our Nation a safe and abundant food supply, safeguard our lands, ensure the health and safety of animals, plants, and people, and facilitate opportunities for prosperity and economic development in rural America. pic.twitter.com/DM9fzcDz0I— Secretary Tom Vilsack (@SecVilsack) October 12, 2021
