What is food and farming? Food is something nutritious that we eat. ... Humans are omnivores, which means they are designed to eat food from either plants or animals. When plants and animals are grown or reared on a large scale for people to eat, it is called farming.
Farming is the act or process of working the ground, planting seeds, and growing edible plants. You can also describe raising animals for milk or meat as farming. Farming is a great way to describe the lifestyle and work of people whose jobs are in the agriculture industry.
With regards to crop production, maize is most widely grown, followed by wheat, sugar cane and sunflowers. Citrus and deciduous fruits are also widely grown at commercial scale and largely destined for export, as are South African wines resulting from commercial grape production.
