We had one of my most favorite meals for dinner tonight. It is one that is only good in the summer when the bulk of the ingredients are at their peak.
We had BLTs, sweet corn, cucumbers with ranch dressing, and sliced peaches.
The beauty of this meal is that the bacon, cucumbers, and sweet corn were all homegrown. The tomatoes and peaches were from our state. And although, the bread and lettuce were not produced in our state, they were products of the USA.
You might not think this is a big deal, but as a farmer, it feels like each and every day someone is questioning how we raise our crops and livestock. If we don't put our trust in the American farmer and let them make decisions based on science vs. emotion, we may not be able to find food produced in the United States someday.
Just some food for thought, literally.
