Meet Iowa Farmers
Never been on a farm? You're not alone. Less than five percent of Iowans farm, and the average person is multiple generations removed from farming.
All across Iowa, farmers work each day to grow and raise the food you and your family enjoy. They care for their animals. They respect and love the land. In many cases, their families have farmed that same land for generations, so it's in their best interest to protect it and care for it.
