As Americans we enjoy and are blessed to have choices about the kind, cost, and quality of food we eat. From local to exotic, organic, natural, or just stopping at the local grocery we have many options.  Often, we don’t even consider how what we purchase is going to affect everyone involved in producing that food from market to grower and in between.  We all want quality, affordable food that is safe for our families.  We all eat.  Do we really want to regulate American agriculture to the point that our food is produced elsewhere and not in America? Do we really expect other countries will regulate and produce the safe and nutritious food we now enjoy to our standards? I recently learned of a group of college students who are trying to educate about food choices and where our food comes from.  ilovefarmers.org   check it out.   Thought provoking…let’s talk.
