Fearless ag predictions for 2015

By Mike Barnett

Time. Where did it go? Seems like yesterday I made my fearless ag predictions for 2014. I wasn’t exactly on target on all of them. But that doesn’t deter me from trying again this year.

Safe. From our farm to your table.

Safe. From our farm to your table.

By Shannon Sparks

Being a mother isn’t always easy. But it’s always worth it.

You want the best for your children, but sometimes you question the decisions you make. Do we buy the expensive baby swing or do we opt for the more economical one? What are the right food choices for nutrition and safety? Am I teaching my children the proper skills at the proper time?

The one thing I’ve always known was right was the decision my husband and I made to raise our children on our farm.
