Farmers love rain – so when Ag Day at the Capitol started out a little soggy, nobody really minded. Our aggies shared what they do with legislators, staffers and the public – including several hundred local school kids who enjoyed lunch courtesy of the “World’s Largest School Lunch Tray.”
Special thanks to the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s partners in organizing Ag Day, the California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom. Thanks also go to our emcee, Laura McIntosh with the PBS TV program Bringing It Home, as well as event sponsors the California Farm Bureau Federation, California Grown, the California Poultry Federation, Calpaca, the Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program, Del Monte Foods, Foster Farms, and John Deere.
It was a beautiful day to be a farmer. Enjoy these photos from Ag Day at the Capitol, and we hope to see you all again next year!
