What Is Agriculture?
October 17, 2016
At first glance, this may seem like a fairly simple question – right? Except, it’s not; not really. Recently I was a part of a conversation where someone defined agriculture – or at least their perception of what agriculture is. And 50 years ago, their description would have fit most agricultural operations. But today? Today, agriculture is a diverse, multifaceted industry…and it is important to look at all the different angles in order to get a true understanding of the industry, and how it affects everyone on a daily basis.
Mmmm...applebutter, apple pie, apple cider! Its National Apple Month
October 10, 2016
Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Honeycrisp, Gala, Granny Smith…October is Apple Month! It began as National Apple Week in 1904, and was expanded to National Apple Month in 1996. Apple harvest is in full swing throughout most of the U.S. now, and orchards make a great pick-your-own weekend trip, as well as a farmer’s market staple!

October is...wait for it….National Pork Month! While some sources say October began as National Pork Month because it was the time that hogs were traditionally marketed, today it serves as a way to celebrate pork producers and share some information about the industry.
