We are a family of four, and our two boys love visiting Grandpa to “help” him on the farm whenever we visit New York. While I grew up on an acreage growing grapes, I want to learn more about Midwestern farming, as it’s an industry I don’t know much about.
Why I'm touring farms
While I’ve heard many moms talking about genetically modified food in a negative light, I’d like to know more and share what I learn. There are so few people connected to farming, especially in the Chicago area, that someone has to help educate our children about agriculture.
