Agricultural Literacy

What is “agricultural literacy?” Simply put, it’s providing knowledge to learners about where their food comes from and the process farmers and ranchers use to provide them with that food.  Ag literacy is something that should be a daily practice.

          November 12-17 is agricultural literacy week in Vermont.

                                     November is Agricultural Literacy Month across the country.

Schools, libraries, Farm Bureaus, state NOFA offices, and state Agencies of Agriculture Food & Markets are just some of the organizations providing information to educate others.

Vermont Farm Bureau is proud to recommend the following 3 books for Agricultural Literacy:




 Hey, Hey, Hay: A Tale of Bales and the Machines That Make Them
