Food Fiber Systems

Food and fiber systems are systems that use human-made and natural systems. A farm is an example of a human-made and natural system. For example, we plant crops to get the materials we need to make edible food. Sometimes we use machines to help us make food and fiber systems. Some restaurants use machines to chop up potatoes grown on farms and cut them into french fries.
