We spend so much time focusing on differences we often overlook what we all share in common. Farmers and consumers share many interest in common; quality food, a healthy environment, good animal care, and sustainable agriculture.
I love the first goal of this group; to help consumers understand that their food is not grown by a factory. It’s grown by people and it’s important to understand and trust the process. Join in the conversation by visiting the Common Ground website and Facebook page.
Another farm woman who shares great rural images and farm facts is Erin Ehnle. She describes herself as, “an Illinois farm girl and photographer” and authors Keeping it Real: Through the Lens of a Farm Girl - Taking snapshots of the agriculture world as it really happens in central Illinois. You can find her on Facebook and Pinterest.
Farmers are parents, community members, property owners and eat just like you. We want the same thing for our family that you want for yours. We have a lot in common.
