In August of 2014, a group of on-line friends started a Facebook page, then a webpage called Ask the Farmers, to help consumers find answers to their questions about agriculture. We had never met in person, but we had all come to recognize each other’s names as we bounced around, countering myths about agriculture. A couple of members of our loose alliance organized the our sporadic efforts into something a little more cohesive, which quickly grew into a social media monster, threatening to consume its creators.
I wrote a couple of posts for the webpage, including my very own “Meet the Farmers” profile. http://www.askthefarmers.com/know-your-farmer-patricia-johnson/
