The holidays are upon us! The next six weeks are full of food, celebrations, family and fun. However, speaking from experience, food poisoning and several hours spent in misery are NOT the way you want to spend family time. Here is a great infographic from www.fightbac.org that preaches food safety as you shop, prepare and serve your Thanksgiving and holiday meals!

Wherever you are and however you choose to celebrate, be mindful of those who raised, harvested and prepared the food you are sharing with your family and friends.
And, while you’re thanking people keep in mind those members of society who will be working on the Thanksgiving holiday:
- law enforcement
- firemen and women
- shop clerks
- restaurant servers
- turnpike operators
- 911 operators
- medical professionals
I’m sure there are many more but it’s pertinent to remember that farmers aren’t the only ones working hard to make the world go round and it sure would be bleak without them.
This year, and every day, I’m thankful for a supportive husband and family, a heaping passel of friends, my health, my amazing job [and fantastic colleagues] and a burning passion for agriculture.
Blessings to you and yours.
Until next time,
