A farm is like a big playground where plants are grown and animals are raised.
Farming started thousands of years ago when our ancestors turned from being hunters and gatherers to growers and keepers.
People learned to plant seeds, grow crops, and raise animals, which made life easier and communities started to grow.
You know those yummy vegetables you eat, like carrots, peas, and cabbages? They’re grown on farms!
Farms are also home to lots of animals. Cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens, and even horses are raised on farms for food, milk, wool, and work.
Some farms are small, run by families and they grow a little bit of everything.
Other farms are really big, growing large amounts of a single crop like corn or wheat, or raising lots of one type of animal.
Farming is very important because without farms, we wouldn’t have enough food and other important things we need to live and grow.
Next time when you enjoy your favorite food, remember it’s the hardworking farmers who bring those tasty bits from their farms to your plates.
