Meet Allyson Maxwell. She is a corn, sugarbeet, soybean, wheat and seasonal pumpkin farmer raising two boys and a farmdog. Whew! She makes a minute to chat about:

  • How a healthy garden became a 12-acre business venture
  • Why sugar differed where she grew up in Kansas City, Kansas
  • Food labels, including what is a GMO? How about genetic modification vs. plant breeding vs. genetic engineering?
  • Should you wash your produce?
  • What kinds of products can be found in her grocery cart?
  • Her baking dreams
  • What activities their family does together
  • A technology that may have a future on their farm
  • A bug bite that led her to where she is today
