Each year in our country, we celebrate eleven national holidays; why do these celebrations neglect those who feed our nation, the farmers? Patrick Martins of Heritage Foods USA and the HeritageRadioNetwork.org proposes a new holiday known as National Farmer’s Day that praises the best in agriculture and food traditions. Hear how Patrick hopes our nation will honor our hard-working farmers, and how a celebration of this magnitude will ensure a healthy future for the country. This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market.

“We are a nation raised on the backs’ of farmers, and National Farmer’s Day will celebrate the traditions of our very best foods while promoting a healthy future secured by American independent farmers- the hardest-working people in the world.” [3:00]
