This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for my work, but the opinions are 100% my own.
I’m a Midwestern girl, so even though I have lived in cities my whole life, I have a great admiration for our country’s farmers and ranchers. I also have a great admiration for bacon. Because bacon.
That’s why I was so excited to learn that Farmland, a leading brand of bacon, sausage, and ham, is partnering with the National FFA Organization, formerly known as Future Farmers of America, to support the future of agriculture. With every Farmland item purchased now through September 30, 2017 Farmland will donate $0.10 to FFA, up to $75,000. These donations will help FFA continue to further its mission of making a positive difference in the lives of students and shine a light on the agricultural industry.
In addition to the donation, Farmland will provide grants to select Midwestern FFA chapters later this year, providing financial support to high school students working on animal care projects. Participating Farmland products include everything from Farmland bacon and breakfast sausage to boneless ham and lunch meats.
Long story short: You buy bacon. You support farmers.
That means when you buy the ingredients to make bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers for your next football game, or pack your kids’ lunches with ham sandwiches, you will be supporting farmers and those studying to become farmers. You are going to do these things anyway, right? Why not make a difference while you do.
Since 1959, Farmland has been passionate about making high-quality foods, working alongside American farm families to offer the best quality products such as bacon, ham, and sausage. More than 50 years later, Farmland’s unsurpassed passion and pride are stronger than ever, serving retail and foodservice customers across the United States.
For more information on Farmland, and how to donate, please visit the Farmland Food Facebook page, the Farmland Food Facebook page, or follow Farmland Foods on Twitter. Support the Future Farmers of
America by going to Walmart and purchasing Farmland products now through Sept. 30.

My parents were communal farmers in the 70s and some of their friends are still farmers! Then Steve’s grandfather was a farmer . . . so I have a lot of respect for it. And nom nom bacon!!
I come from a long line of farmers so I’ve got a lot of respect for them! Love me some bacon too – definitely one of my faves!
