Why Teach About Agriculture? In the past, people were very aware of the role agriculture played in their lives. It meant survival. Nearly everyone - men, women and children - worked the land. On average, today's youth are five generations removed from the land. They no longer have a grandfather or aunt on the farm. They no longer have firsthand contact with farms or ranching. They are not aware of the vast range and impact of agriculture on our society and way of life. Because we eat, we are involved with agriculture.
