Hello Crafty Friends,
Today brings a new challenge at Exploring Cricut.
The Challenge..."Down on the Farm"
Today, the average U.S. farmer feeds 155 people. In 1960, a farmer fed just 26 people. Want to know more about the American farmer? Check out this link. Lots of interesting farm facts, videos, and recipes.
Here is my Design Team project...
Did you know...There are about 920 different breeds of cows in the world. Until the 1850's, nearly every family had its own cow. Well...this is the closest I am going to get to owning a cow.
Today, farmers use machines to milk more than 100 cows per hour. Before milking machines were invented in 1894, farmers could only milk about 6 cows per hour.
