Those Who Care for the Land

Respect for the earth. The highest nutritional content. An unwavering commitment to safety. These Faces of Food are producers, growers, farmers. For generations this has been so.

Fiercely independent, their legacy is their land. They care for it like their life depends on it – because it does. They do what they say and take tremendous pride in their role to feed the world. Producing more from each acre to fill an ever-larger number of mouths. Challenged by uncertain weather, volatile markets and increasing cost pressures, they face each day with the hope a new crop brings.

These are the stories of life on the farm.

In turn, those communities support their farmers. This inspirational story of the Beckmans from Pender, Nebraska, shows the power of small-town bonds.
