Producers in Iowa are busily wrapping up the harvest season, which was delayed due to weather conditions. Forget skateboarders and bungee jumpers - farmers are the ultimate risk takers. Each year some literally bet the farm that the crop and market prices will carry them through another year. During this holiday season, please think about what you eat and how it was prepared. Respect the efforts put forth by the food producers in this country. They are true stewards of the land. Support farmers by buying their products. Give THANKS (note the caps) for our SafeFood© supply and the farmers and livestock producers who provide us with such an abundance of high quality food.
