The Disconnect between People and Food

September 9th was the annual Kids' Ag Day, a cooperative venture between the Great Bend Chamber, area school FFA programs, public agencies involved in agriculture, area producers/agribusinesses, and presenters who have volunteered their talents and energies to provide Barton County fourth graders a glimpse into the world of producing food, fiber, and fuel. For over twenty years this event has exposed area children to what is involved in farming and ranching. While it may seem unnecessary in a rural area, most of today's children, even here, are disconnected from where their food comes from.
