We Bet You Can’t Pass This Farm Quiz

Farming is not as old as you may like to think, despite it seeming like it has been done since the beginning of human history. In reality, there have been quite a few agricultural revolutions in our time, with the very first one taking place around 10,000 years ago when we went from being hunters and gatherers to settling down and creating farms that had crops as well as animals. It was during this time that those who were living in Mesopotamia – today’s Middle East – began forming communities that were settled in one location versus being nomadic in nature and constantly moving around.

It was when humans were all in one spot that they started inventing things that would make farming easier, such as the wheel. The plants that we eat today were originally planted and domesticated at this early time too. We also started farming animals such as pigs, goats, and sheep. There was so much that was done throughout time to get us to the place we are today in terms of modern day farming, so how much (or little) do you know about farming? This quiz will challenge your farming knowledge both in terms of animals and in terms of plants, let’s see how much you know!
