Earlier this week I gave the keynote address at the Michigan Farm Bureau District 9 Agricultural Summit. The event took place at Crystal Mountain resort. It included the county annual meetings for Benzie-Mainstee, Missauka, Northwest, and Wexford counties.
As part of my keynote address, I shared with those in attendance my background in agriculture and why I decided to start writing as The Farmer’s Daughter USA. I shared some red flags that indicate to me the importance of connecting with consumers. And I explained how ag-vocating makes a difference and how everyone can put a face to modern agriculture.
I am always impressed with Michigan Farm Bureau’s committment to agriculture-friendly public policy. The organization does a wonderful job of building relationships with elected officials, fostering leadership in members, and sharing agriculture with community children.
Thank you so much to District 9 for having me and allowing me to share my story! I had a lot of fun and it was wonderful to meet so many people who are passionate about agriculture!
