Farmers To You Blog: A Farmer's Perspective

  • Learning From Each Other

    by Greg Georgaklis

    Last week we received an email from one of our partner families asking us to help them understand “why is the price of local, organic milk so high?”

    At Farmers To You we provide your comments and questions directly to the farmers and producers, so we reached out to Larson Farm and Creamery for more information and we would like to share this exchange with you.

    I have a confession to make. Sometimes I can take the incredible bounty of our farmers and small producers for granted. This is not because I don’t understand the time and labor spent growing food, raising animals or stirring together ingredients for bread or pies.

    There was a farmer who grew excellent, quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

    “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

    After a stressful several months and a lot of time in our homes, many of us have cabin fever. At the same time, many are still cautious about nonessential travel right now, especially for those who may be at higher risk of complications related to Covid-19. However, if you are one of those people just itching to head out on summer vacation, you are not alone.
