Where our food comes from...

One persistent complain from farmers has been "people don't know where their food comes from". I think the implication is once people find out it comes from a farm they will be OK with paying subsidies in addition to actually paying for the product. (Strikes me as unlikely, but ...)

OK, fair enough, but my contention is farmers don't know where their food comes from, either.

So try this little quiz. Where does most of this food come from? Try to name the largest single source, by state or country.
  1. Bananas
  2. Oranges
  3. Lamb chops
  4. Hamburger
  5. Canola oil
  6. Onions
  7. Flour
  8. Brussel sprouts
  9. Potatoes
  10. Olive oil
  11. Pickles
  12. Apples
  13. Milk
  14. Wine
  15. Garlic
  16. Baby back ribs
  17. Peaches
  18. Tomatoes

Answers in a few days.
