I have a degree in archaeology, I'm involved with my church, and I volunteer at school.
We have six children ranging from 15-years old to 2-years old. My family is into many sports: hockey, baseball and basketball, etc. We enjoy movie nights on Fridays and barbeques on the weekends. Books are also big in our house. Many of our kids are voracious readers.
I want to learn about farming life and the families who own and operate these farms – and teach my kids about the values we share. I find the whole idea of growing food or raising livestock to feed hundreds of people amazing. I don't think anyone who hasn't grown up on a farm actually has any idea of what goes on in their day-to-day lives – me included! It's easy to sit here in Naperville and go to the grocery store and not think about having to work for our food.
I hope to visit a cattle or pig farm. I am most curious about the treatment of the animals. My view of animals is only of my pets that live indoors with my family. I don't know if I could separate my feelings for the animals enough to send them to market. It will be interesting to hear the farmer's take on it.
