5 Articles To Read In Celebration Of National Farmer’s Day

National Farmer’s Day is October 12, and at TangoTab, we understand how farming– both traditional farming and nontraditional farming– plays an important role in the overall health of any given community.

Records of National Farmer’s Day date back to the 1800s. While much has changed in the farming industry since then, the importance of farming practices remains the same.

Access to fresh produce is important for the wellbeing of people, and TangoTab is committed to supporting sustainable agriculture projects that increase access to nutritious food for those in need.
