Being successful at farming is hard enough without a Pandemic. Now on top of the regular challenges of planning, planting, growing, watering, harvesting and marketing crops, farmers today have to take extra steps to keep their family and workforce safe from the Covid-19 virus. Aaron Barcellos, partner in the family farm, A-Bar Ag Enterprise, knows that in addition to providing gloves, masks, staggered schedules and equipment modifications for protective barriers, the farm team still must be safe both at the farm and in their time away from the farm so they don't catch and spread the virus. Cropping plans have also been disrupted as exports have dried up and food service has almost disappeared. Through all of this it is more important than ever to acknowledge food security and to care about how and where are food is grown.
