Farm tours are a great way to meet consumers of all ages to share how
we work everyday on the farm to produce safe,affordable food.
This week I was privileged to be one of the host farms for the 12th tour
of Moms on the Farm. Janeal Yancey, my favorite University of Arkansas
meat scientist ,organized the first tour in 2012. Each tour day includes
a visit to dairy, poultry and beef farms located in Benton or Washington County.
The finishing touch to the tour is a delicious lunch hosted by
Arkansas Cattle Women preparing delicious beef recipes.
I'm thankful for the Moms and the few men that braved a
chilly and windy day to learn about Arkansas farming and food production.
