Found via an email from the National Farmers’ Union comes a new tool from the USDA, putting all their statistical data goodness in one map. It’ll take me a bit of playing to become adept at using it, but there is so much to be fascinated by and pour over and delve into. For example, we can look at the number of vegetable acres harvested by county, and the sales of such directly to the public per county, and the at-home consumption of fruits and vegetables per county, and the number of farmers’ markets per capita, and and and! Health, exercise, SNAP program participation, access to food stores .. it doesn’t end! I’ll be excited to see how we can all make use of this data to address some of the concerns it raises -
