Overview

While working to ensure the safety of the food we eat and beverages we drink, the Department of Agriculture also does all it can to promote the work of the country's ranchers and farmers, control trade, and protect our nation's natural resources. Each time you have a snack or sit down to a meal, wear a cotton shirt, or admire the flowers planted in your garden, you're seeing the work of the Department of Agriculture. In this book, you'll learn more about what it does and how its work impacts your life in big and small ways.
