How to celebrate National Ag Day from home

Cook that bacon, eat that cookie, and drink that milk this week at home – all in the celebration of Americans farmers and ranchers.

Throughout the year, we celebrate simple, fun days such as National Cookie Day, National Milk Day, or National Bacon Day. Tuesday, March 24 is the day to celebrate American agriculture. The entire week is actually devoted to educating, appreciating, and bringing awareness of the everyday efforts of farmers across the nation.

However, this week looks a little different than past National Ag Weeks. With the spread of COVID-19, National Ag Day events in Washington, D.C. have been cancelled to slow the spread and protect attendees. Although it’s an uncertain time across our country, making it difficult to celebrate, there are still countless ways to observe the day and the whole week.

  • Make a farm-to-table meal with your family.
  • Research agricultural issues affecting your region.
  • Share what agriculture means to you in a photo on social media – whether it’s the ingredients for your dinner, a rural field, or livestock. Use the hashtag #FoodforLife.
  • Have a scavenger hunt in your kitchen.
  • Read agriculture books.

So, cook that bacon, eat that cookie, and drink that milk this week at home – all in the celebration of Americans farmers and ranchers.

National Ag Day was created to recognize and celebrate the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. The National Ag Day Program encourages every American to understand how food and fiber products are produced, to value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy, and to appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant, and affordable products.
