It’s not a trip home without…

Last week I had the opportunity to make a quick trip back to Arkansas to see family and friends. It was my first visit since Christmas and it seems like 5 days flew by entirely too fast. With every trip home growing farther apart these days, I always have a brief list of things that […]

Guest Post: Update from the Oregon Grass Farmer

There is light at the end of tunnel for Grass Seed Harvest 2013 with about a week left of combining grass and two weeks for baling.

Thankful Thursday: Field Trip to the Sheep Barn

College kids take field trips too. Although this one was quite a short trip. I had the opportunity to play shuttle driver for the lab sections of the Introduction to Animal Science class. We went to the University farm just outside of town to learn about sheep farming. These students are mostly Freshmen, and many […]

What does Agriculture mean to you?

“Agriculture. It’s more than a part of life. It’s a passion, a lifestyle, a resilient community that works hard to feed the world.” I first put this statement together in November 2010 after asking several of my followers why they were thankful for Agriculture (see blog series).
