Farming is still a major source of many of the foods we use today. Did you know that there are 90 millions acres plant to corn here in the US and that these acres product about 40% of the worlds corn? Corn is used for many things, including ethanol production. Aside from corn, there are about 75 million acres planted to soybeans. I acre of soybeans can produce 2,500 gallons of spy milk, 40,000 8oz servings of tofu, and over 82,000 crayons.
Recently I introduced the Matthews, a family that has been farming for several generations. Today, let’s meet the Woodrow Family. The Woodrows live in Illinois and grow corn, wheat, and soybeans. Kelly Woodrow started farming with his dad, Don, in 1978 when he was 18 years old. Don is now retired, and Kelly’s sons have now stepped into the business and help run the farm. You can learn more about the Woodrows and other farm families by visiting America’s Farmers.
