“Less than two percent of our population farms. Yet, according to a recent survey by Zogby, 85 percent of consumers say they want to learn more about where their food comes from. Therefore, it’s exceedingly important that we actively communicate the story of agriculture and, more specifically, the shared values farmers and consumers have -- from caring for air, soil and water quality and the well-being of animals to being active in community, church, school and civic opportunities. Darcy Maulsby has a long and distinguished career in reporting about farm and rural life issues and is a trusted resource.”
