We have five sons who learned to love gardening from their grandfather. Our family grows a garden every year and is very interested in farming. I write for three different blogs, including a food blog, Chicago Foodie Sisters.
Why I'm touring farms
I appreciate the work that farmers do to put food on the table. I like to feature local farms in my food blog so others can see that as well. The crowded suburb that I live in used to be a farm town, but now almost no farms exist here and few people in our area know about farming. I love to learn about where food comes from and want to help promote family farming in Illinois.
