9 Things This Farm Mom Wants You to Know About Food | Nurse Loves Farmer

I believe that from the moment we learn we are going to be parents, we do the best we can to protect our growing babies, and that instinct never leaves us. Our first baby was born in January 2010 and I used to write on this blog about anything and everything in our daily life raising our first son. This blog was truly our online journal for the world to see. I continued to chronicle our life as we got pregnant and had our second baby in 2012, and this is when I really started to notice a shift in how many of my parent peers were concerned and cared about the food they were feeding their families.

As a city-girl-turned-farm-wife and mom, I have learned everything I have about food and farming from my 4th generation farmer husband, and from getting to know other farmers and experts in agriculture in social media. It worried me that so many moms didn’t trust what farmers were doing and how they are raising their food with the amazing modern technology that they have available. I felt a calling to step in and become a part of the conversation.
