Farming is an important aspect of life. If we don’t have any farmers there will be hardly any food for us to eat. As I live on a farm I see from a first-hand viewpoint about how farmers and farming is not always given the respect it deserves. For example, we are treating famers’ land with no respect because we are dumping litter on crops which means when it goes to get tested the litter is ruining the quantity of the crop. Food can be made from some crops, such as wheat. If the crops are not producing high quality products then this will mean that the customers will not be getting the best product. Sometimes the farmers get the blame for this, but it is not their fault if people throw rubbish into these fields.
Did you know that the price of milk has gone down? Great news for the customer; not so good news for the famers. They are still producing the same amount of milk, but not getting as much money as they used to. Is this really fair? Because of this there are cutbacks to be made. In farming families they are having to carry out massive cutbacks, like no holidays, when people who do this tough, manual job need a break like everybody else.
Let’s try and help our local farmers. Think about things before you do it. Put your rubbish in a bin or in your pocket. Because if we carry on we will damage the food.
