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

About Me

I lived in a rural Illinois town for 11 years while teaching there. My class enjoyed learning experiences offered by the DeKalb County Farm Bureau. Now, I’m a preschool teacher in the Chicago suburbs where I live with my husband and two children.

Why I'm touring farms

My farm experiences are limited to hayrides at pumpkin farms. I’d like to spend time on an Illinois farm to find out if family farms still exist and see how important they are to our society. As a mom, I want to know what’s in our meat and dairy products.
