This part of the agriculture industry is the part that hauls, grades, processes, packages and markets commodities from our producers. Almost everything we consume, use, or wear can be traced back to a ranch, farm, forest, greenhouse, body of water or other production facilities. The hamburger you eat, the coat you wear, and even most of the ingredients in your coffee, soda, etc can be traced back to one of these kinds of producers. Right here in Dallas the Dallas Farmers Market, located at 1010 S. Pearl Expressway, is one example of getting the product from the farm to us as consumers. Here is a place where we can buy locally fresh produce grown right here in and around the Dallas area.
Agriculture touches every part of our lives every day. All the careers listed in this category play a very important part of getting the things we use or consume into our hands every day. There may be one here that fits your interests and talents.
