It's a passion for farmers to raise these animals with as much care as they would any animal.

About Me

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.
