Dave Johnson, sixth-generation farmer and owner/operator of Johnson Farms — the largest dairy farm in Michigan's Upper Peninsula — gives a behind-the-scenes look at the possible widespread repercussions looming from the COVID-19 economic shutdowns, from the perspective of the 1%–2% of Americans who provide the nation with food:

"People are worried about COVID-19 — but what's the fear going to be if you can't get food? Think about it. Where are people in the cities going to go for food? They all think it comes from a grocery store, in their minds. No, it comes from a farm."
