Where does your food come from? People go to shops and supermarkets to buy food. But how did the food get into the shops? Famers grow plants as crops. They grow cereals. The cereals are made into food. Farmers grow vegetables. We eat the vegetables. Farmers also grow plants to feed animals. Grass grows in fields. Cows and sheep eat the grass. We get milk and meat from the cows and sheep. We all need farmers and their crops so we have food to eat.
