“No farmers, no food, no future”

"No farmer(s), no food, no future” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The protest slogan has been cited in Canada since 1990, but is now worldwide.

“No farmers. no food. No future” was printed in the Ottawa (ON) Citizen on September 19, 1990. “No Farmers, No Food, No Future” was printed in The Whig-Standard (Kingston, ON) on November 16, 1991.  “No Farmers, No Food, No Future” was printed in the same Whig-Standard on July 23, 1997. “No farmers, No food, No future” was printed in The Post-Star (Glens Falls, NY) on April 12, 2005. “No farmer, no food, no future” was printed in The Spectator (Hamilton, ON) on November 25, 2005. “No Farmer, No Food, No Future” was posted on Twitter by Slow Food Italia on May 2, 2011.

“no farmers, no food, no future. #FarmerProtest” (referring to a protest in India, and also shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by jaspreet on October 11, 2021. “Wow! Dutch farmers are not joking: ‘No farmers, no food, no future’” (referring to a protest in the Netherlands) was posted on Twitter by RadioGenova on July 25, 2022.

“No farms, no food” is a related saying.

A billboard, recently erected by a group of Ontario farmers, sums it up well… Just think! No farmers. no food. No future.

16 November 1991, The Whig-Standard (Kingston, ON), “Farmers roll through Napanee streets to protest ‘mess’ created by politicians” by Jack Rafter, pg. 1:
The tractors bore signs displaying messages such as “Welfare Pays, Farming Doesn’t”; “No Farmers, No Food, No Future” and “Canada, Don’t Sign GATT Without Article 11.”

23 July 1997, Kingston (ON) Whig-Standard, “Letters,” pg. 7, col. 5:
During each trip I take to Toronto, I look forward to seeing the roadside sign that says: “No Farmers, No Food, No Future.” That says it all for me.

So that would make most farmers failures, after all they have lots of capital assests, work really long, hard hours, and have very little to show for it. It seems curious that anybody would stay farming if worth really is a general measure of worth. Your theory looks like rubbish to me, because farming is very worthwhile - no farmers, no food.

10 August 2000, Ottawa (ON) Citizen, “Letters,” pg. A15, col. 6:
Surely no one can deny our farmers are the backbone of our country. As a few road signs say: No farmers, No food, No future.

15 March 2001, Windsor (ON) Star, “Troubled farmers demand more aid” by Star Staff, pg. A1, col. 4:
With signs saying “Farmers mean business” and “No Farmers, No Food, No Future,” they headed to a rally outside Toronto and picked up thousands of vehicles along the way.

You know the old saying, no rain no water, no farmer no food.

12 April 2005, The Post-Star (Glens Falls, NY), “letters,” pg. A5, col. 5:
Obviously these people, whoever they are, have not seen Tom Curtis’ sign on state Route 40 in the town of Argyle which states, “No farmers, No food, No future.” Apparently this is their ultimate goal.
