Meet the Moms
I have three boys, ages 2, 10 and 15. We love being outdoors and scouting. I enjoy learning about the self-sufficient lifestyle and sharing that with my children.
Why I'm touring farms
It's important for people to know where food is coming from. I recognize that food doesn't just appear in our stores and on our tables, and I want others to understand that, too. I hope that by sharing what I'm learning through this program, others will be impacted and will share the information as well.

"Antibiotic free, organic, natural... What do these claims really mean?"
WHAT DO FOOD LABEL CLAIMS REALLY MEAN?
I was thinking last night about marketing and farming. Marketing is such a powerful vehicle because in the end it influences what I think to be truth and
how I spend my money. Antibiotic free, hormone free, organic, natural… What do these claims really mean, though?
SO, WHAT DOES "ANTIBIOTIC FREE" MEAN?
All farmers are required to follow strict withdrawal periods for animals given antibiotics, so what does this really mean? The milk and meat that you are
consuming is antibiotic free regardless of what it says on the label.
SO, WHAT DOES "HORMONE FREE" MEAN?
SO, WHAT DOES "ORGANIC" MEAN?
SO, WHAT DOES "NATURAL" MEAN?
Then why does my package of split chicken breasts say "natural"? Why does my carton of soy milk say "natural"? Aren't they by nature, natural?
