Farmer Boys menu has a secret ingredient
Farmer boys menu has the secret ingredient: beef.
The name of the menu was originally developed by the Farm Bureau and the USDA to be available at farmers markets.
It’s now on shelves in nearly every state.
But not every state has the right to offer the menu.
It requires approval from the USDA.
The Farm Bureau, which represents more than 600,000 farmers, says it only offers the menu to farmers who meet the guidelines.
The USDA has no plans to regulate the menu, said Tom Smith, director of USDA’s Office of Agricultural Marketing.
He said it is currently a matter of policy.
The farm bill has not been signed into law, but Smith said it’s possible it could become law in the future.
