Miss American 2011 Teresa Scanlan is teaming up with the Animal Agriculture Alliance to launch a new website http://www.realfarmersrealfood.com/, which showcases the importance of American farmers and ranchers, large and small, to our nation’s security and vitality.

“Not everybody farms, but everybody has to eat,” Scanlan says in the one-minute video, also available at http://www.youtube.com/animalagalliance. “Most Americans don’t realize how essential and crucial agriculture is to our lives and to our economy.”

Visitors to the website can:

“It’s refreshing to see the positive story of American agriculture told on a national stage,” says Alliance Executive Vice President Kay Johnson Smith, “Teresa has stayed true to her agricultural roots during her time as Miss America by speaking out for farmers and ranchers who often receive too little credit for the hard work that they do – feeding us every day.”
