Thanks and Giving: Opportunity

Day 4 of giving thanks...for opportunities to tell your story.

Last spring, a handful of our local farmers took a couple trailer loads of livestock to a suburban Chicago school. We got to tell our story.

Ipava farmer Randy Farr even spoke with a parent who thought "Food, Inc." was a great movie that showed both sides of the story. Randy was patient, thoughtful, engaging, and he took the opportunity to tell him why organic food is safe but so is conventionally-produced food. That parent walked away with a new perspective.

Tell your story. And be grateful for every opportunity to do so.
