Keep it Real, Keep it Rural

Lorraine Lewandrowski is a lawyer and a dairy farmer in Herkimer County, New York. She has lots to say about dairy farms, the small farmer, and is happy to share some of her thoughts on why organic might not always be what it’s cracked up to be. Here’s a quote from an article she wrote called Small Dairies and the Big Apple: “I urge farmers and ranchers not to rely totally on traditional farm organizations to speak for them. Take a few friends and a day to go into the heart of your nearest Big City to speak to ‘food movement” groups. Be yourself, talk to people with respect, and find out what is on people’s minds. Engage in social media that is fast and easy, like Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and others.” How did I find Lorraine one might ask? She called me out on Twitter. This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
