Farmers are individuals who work in the agricultural industry in a varied selection of areas within the industry. There are several kinds of farmers ranging from farmers who raise animals to farmers who grow crops. No matter the area of the agricultural industry, a farmer's main goal is to raise a good crop and help to provide a large amount of goods for the world. Farmers are responsible for all of our organic crops that we need to survive. Without food, the world would slowly die, and farmers work hard every day to keep plenty of crops and animal products in the market to keep that from happening.
