Tuesday was Ag Day at the Illinois State Fair where people had many opportunities to learn about the agriculture industry, what things are new and upcoming, how they can support their local farmers, and much more. Regional Radio News was live at Ag Day and caught up with Grant Noland of Farm Families to ask him about what the organization was doing at Ag Day. Noland said that Farm Families is an operation that tries to educate the public about what's in the food and how it's grown, because the consumers have the right to know.
Noland said some of the top questions they get, are the big questions everyone wants to know, and especially for him, GMOs and Sustainability.
Noland said Farm Families has a goal to produce crops safely, sustainably, and in a manner that the consumer is confident in, and that's what they're doing.
