There is a hunger out there, not just to fill your stomach with food, but also for knowledge about agriculture, the farmer and our values. It seems that people want to have a connection to THE AMERICAN FARM and to those who raise the food they eat. And that is the reason why Farmer Joe and I host our (free) Dinner on the Farm series each year. Is a lot of work? Yup, and we love every minute of it. Connecting with people and sharing what we do has lasting effects, at least for us and ( hopefully) for our guests. We set the stage for the event and the guests write the script for the evening. It is like that Lowe's TV commerical, you have questions, we have answers.

The outdoor setting of our farmhouse is decorated as well.
