Farmers from across Illinois will be opening their doors to give 20 city moms - including me! - the chance to peek inside their lives. I'm looking forward to touring six farms this year, where I'll have the chance to get a firsthand look at what our farmers do every day. Like many people, I worry about pesticides and hormones in my food and how they affect my children. I hope to talk to farmers, see what the processes are for growing food and learn more about their livelihoods. I'll be posting photos and videos of the tours so others can follow along from home - so if you have any questions for our Illinois farmers, please email me at email@example.com and I'll be sure to get the firsthand scoop.
