1) You can get far more crops and food by farming than by gathering/scavenging/hunting.

2) It gives a certain schedule and reliability to your food supply - you plant seeds, you reap harvests, you know how to schedule your eating around. Whereas with scavenging or hunting, there is no guarantee of a reliable food supply, or even food at all.

3) Your wheat field, pigs, chickens and other stuff is right outside your door (if you're a farmer.) A hunter or gatherer might have to go long distances.
