Sometimes it is hard to figure out what the truth is when you get hit with "facts" from every direction. With the topic of agriculture it is no different. You've got the tv and the internet telling you things and your neighbor down the street telling you things and you are constantly being bombarded by advertisements that exaggerate and lie.
Could this be you?
Normally I'd tell you to only trust the cows, but not even us cows know everything. Obviously we can tell you many things about dairy farming as we report on The Farmer, but truth be told we don't know much about chickens, or cucumbers, or corn (except that we love to eat it!)
So how do you find a farmer to talk to on the internet? I suggest you check out The Follow Farmer list where you can look up farmers by state or by the type of agriculture you are interested in learning about.
When you want the truth you should go to the source. So I say, why not ask a farmer?
