Farmers Use Water To Do Something Amazing: They Grow Your Food
Almost everything we touch in our everyday lives takes water to produce. Whether it’s a juicy summer peach, a pair of cotton blue jeans, a couch and even your computer or smart phone, they all require water somewhere in the production process.
Farmers do something amazing with the water they have. They use it to grow food. When you think about it, producing food is one of the most important uses of water because we need food to nourish our bodies every day. So the water that grows farm products doesn’t really stay on the farm. It’s in the food we buy at the grocery store. It’s in our lunch at school or in the hamburger we have at a diner. It’s even in that bucket of popcorn at the movies!
