|good enough to eat!|
I know that when I was filling in my ballot to choose which guy would represent me and my farm to the general public that I considered long and hard. I read the voters pamphlet, and I went to the rallies, and then I talked about it with my neighbors, and I'm pretty happy with my farm representation...
No, not really. Don't get me wrong, both of these gentlemen have had lots of influence on farms and farming, but I have to say that it's really tiring to hear the same two voices over and over again. There's gotta be someone else that is doing great things that can speak up - does anyone you know spring to mind?
Maybe it's time to write a book - but most of the farmers I know who wrote books did either shortly before they lost their farm, or shortly before they went out of business; it seems like the two are linked - write a book, stop farming.
Just in case you didn't get enough pigs eating fruit salad, here's todays video
