Farmers  (like Miners, Foresters, Fishers and such) are often evoked as the heart of a nation's workers.  But about 2% of people make their living primarily through farming now, as opposed to 40% a century ago according to this article.

This is a good read about what is happening in farming.  It also makes sense that China is threatening the US with Soy tariffs in retaliation as those people are in Iowa and Trumpland.

Our survival depends on 2% of the population. Something to consider.
