It’s that time of year! Fall is almost here. That means summer helpers are headed back to school for the year. Read on for some of recommendations for a smooth transition into the new school year.
Everyday products needed for the back to school season also have their origins from farms. Here are a few notable products we can thank farming for:
Crayons – Did you know crayons are made from soybeans? One acre of soybeans can create more than 82,000 crayons!
Footballs – Fall wouldn’t be complete without footballs to play the most popular sport in America. Footballs are made using the leather from a cowhide, not from “pig skin” as one commonly hears. One cowhide can make 20 footballs!
Jeans – One popular item that is on kids back to school shopping list is a new pair of jeans. Jeans today are made from cotton. A single bale of cotton can make 215 pairs of jeans.
