Helping Your Kids Love Farming

April FreemanHere are some things that we are doing to instill a love for farming and growing things in our children.

1. Emphasize quality foods.

My kids are kind of becoming food snobs. They won’t turn down a pizza or a burger, but after a few days of being away from home, they rave about my food. Now, I am far from a gourmet cook, but I do use high-quality, homegrown ingredients. I avoid processed foods and the kids love what I serve them. My kids taste the difference in store-bought, trucked-half-way-across-the-continent tomatoes and a warm, juicy, sun-ripened tomato freshly picked from the garden.
