The American Farmer & COVID-19

The American Farmer & COVID-19

Westfield was started by farmers back in 1848, and we've carried that legacy all the way through to today. Although the resolve of the American farmer is very strong, it’s important now that we draw a much deeper connection with our agribusiness customers and really dig in to understand their business.

The sense of community in the food and agriculture community is strong, but the health of the American farmer and commercial agribusiness worker is at risk. Here are some great resources to help you learn more about how we can support the food and agribusiness community:
