FOOD DOESN'T GROW IN THE SUPERMARKET
Meet the City Guy. He buys his favorite foods—milk, cranberry juice, vegetables—at the supermarket, and never wonders how it all got there. In the video, City Guy is transported to three New Jersey farms to learn where his food comes from and to meet the hardworking farmers who grow it for him.
Presenting a new video from the New Jersey Agricultural Society, "Food Doesn't Grow in the Supermarket." This amusing and engaging 28-min video that shows students where their food really comes from—New Jersey farms!
Download the video and take your students on a tour of real New Jersey farms!
City Guy, dressed in his suit and tie and with his briefcase in hand, takes a tour of a real New Jersey dairy farm, cranberry farm, and vegetable farm. At each stop, his guide is a young farmer who explains how food is produced on the farm and shows him all the work that must be done to bring it to him.
In this charming presentation, your students will laugh at the adventures of City Guy on the farm as they learn about the New Jersey farmers who ensure that their supermarket shelves are full of food for their next meal.
