The Farmer's Share Of The Retail Dollar

Did you know that farmers and ranchers receive only 15.6 cents of every food dollar that consumers spend on food at home and away from home? According to USDA, off farm costs including marketing, processing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing account for more than 80 cents of every food dollar spent in the United States.
