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
