Down on the Farm - Alabama Farmers Federation
2 whole wheat tortillas
1 can of cooked chicken
¼ cup shredded cheese
¼ cup green pepper, optional
1. Place one tortilla on a plate.
2. Top with chicken, cheese and green pepper.
3. Place second tortilla on top.
4. Optional – ask an adult to heat the quesadilla in a
skillet on the stove, just enough to melt the cheese.
5. Cut into pieces and enjoy.
Use this same idea to create other quesadillas with
different ingredients. Try peanut butter, banana and
honey. Be creative! And remember to thank a farmer,
because they’re working hard every day to grow food
for everyone in our country and our world!
Now that you know more about the food grown and
made in Alabama, why not make a special recipe for
dinner or a snack? Make sure an adult helps with
using the stove and sharp utensils.

From Farm to Table
When it comes to food, most of what you eat probably
comes from a grocery store or restaurant. But where
do the stores and restaurants get food? It comes
from our farms. From chicken and steaks to fruits and
veggies, the food you eat was first raised by a farmer.
Alabama has a lot of poultry farmers. In fact, we’re
third in the U.S. for number of chickens raised. Help
our farmer get his chickens from his farm to the
grocery store. Be sure to stay on the right side of the
road. Start at the hatchery, then stop at the broiler
farm, processing plant, food service company, grocery
store and end at your table.
A Regular Day on the Farm
Farmers cover a lot of ground in Alabama. Our state
has almost 49,000 farms on more than 9 million acres
of land. Farmers take their jobs very seriously and do
their best to care for their land, animals and crops.
But this farm needs some color!
