Farm Bill Curriculum
From the Farm Gate to Your Plate, the Farm Bill Affects Us All
The process of getting food from the farm gate to your plate is complex! Every five
years, a piece of legislation is passed that is commonly called the Farm Bill. Originally
started in the Dust Bowl, the first Farm Bill was The Agricultural Act of 1933. It
helped agricultural commodity markets by offering financial support to farmers. Today,
this bill provides risk protection to food producers, finds new markets for excess
agricultural production, enhances conservation, and gets food to risk insecure individuals.
This five-lesson online curriculum for youth in 7th to 12th grades is designed to inform youth about key milestones of the farm bill and how it is affects farmers, ranchers and rural families today.
