You might not know but my husband is from a farming family. My husband was raised on a working dairy farm and his cousins currently raises pigs, in fact his cousins has 5000 head of pigs. I find the whole process of raising live stock fascinating since I have a more suburban upbringing. It is a real interesting process the use of computer and technology is amazing, I think every person should be allowed to see where there food comes from and meet the people who raise it.
There has been alot of debates on how are food is raised many sides to the story.
This past Motherhood asked me to be a co-host today Twitter party with the United States Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) to discuss how pop culture affects people’s perception of food. The party will preview a series of panel discussions about the intersection of food and entertainment in society, which will be taking place on USFRA’s Food Dialogues website on June 20 and 21. For insights on this topic, we will be joined by real-life farmer/rancher Chris Chinn and other expert guests who will be participating in the panel discussions.
