Cut to the Chase: A real dilemma

by Rebecca French Smith

Can someone please tell me the difference between “real” food and “fake” food? I used to think the latter was plastic until a newspaper article suggested otherwise. Growing up we had fake, rubber grapes that my mom put in a bowl on the table, and I admit, I have beaded pears in a crystal vase on my sideboard.

The title of a recent column in the

Cut to the Chase: Land of legacy

by Rebecca French Smith

At the turn of the 20th century, 38% of the labor force was farmers. Today, only 2% still call farming their own, yet they feed the world with less land, less water, and a sense of stewardship that rivals that of a century ago. Some of today’s farmers come from a long line of farming; you might say it’s in their blood. For more than 100

Cut to the Chase: State Fair for all the senses

by Ken Gordon

One of the best ways to experience sensory overload is to visit your state fair. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes and things you can feel are once-a-year musts. If you have ever experienced a state fair, you know the feeling. From the puffy feel of cotton candy melting in your mouth, to a stroll through the livestock barns, a visit to your state fair can provide an

Cut to the Chase: All Things Considered

by Diane Olson

‘What’s for dinner?’

‘Hot enough for you?’

Topics such as food and weather are sure conversation starters, especially this summer. This year’s drought conditions across the nation bring both topics to the forefront. The news regularly includes updates on the severe drought scorching most of the country. The story has rapidly widened to concern for food prices and availability.

Although many factors impact food prices, farmers only

Cut to the Chase: Not your father’s Farm Bill

by Tracy Taylor Grondine

Farm bill legislation approved by the Senate and awaiting debate in the House of Representatives is not your father’s typical farm bill. It’s about the future. Passing through the Senate last week, the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act (S. 3240) recognizes that U.S. farmers are aging and something needs to be done to ensure that the future of agriculture is viable. The Senate’s version includes

Cut to the Chase: Eden along the Missouri

by Blake Hurst

The Garden of Eden, in my mind, has always looked something like a cornfield in late June. Just before tasseling, when the corn is at its darkest green, perhaps even blue, and if you listen really close, you can almost hear it grow. Perhaps it is a field along the Missouri River, where the rows run long and straight.

To others, the Garden of Eden is a

Cut to the Chase: Something certain

by Glen Cope

Two things in life bring about the most grief when crossing the human psyche: death and taxes. When combined, they become a perfect cocktail of anxiety. While a family deals with the passing of a loved one, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., find it necessary to exacerbate that grief by taxing the occasion.

I have worked from an early age alongside my parents on the farm. From building

Cut to the Chase: Farmers ‘Pay It Forward’ with pizza

by Chris Chinn

My family participated in the “Ag Pizza Party” to show our support for Domino’s Pizza. The company recently announced it would rely on animal experts, not animal activist groups, to determine the best way to raise farm animals for food production. As a farmer, I respect Domino’s for its common sense decision and for trusting the experts in animal care. That’s why we are among the thousands

Cut to the Chase: Advocacy must engage the congregation

by Bob Stallman

Farm Bureau’s brand of advocacy has been a key part of my entire adult life. I first got involved with the organization when I was relatively young and was having problems with the state of Texas over water rights on my farm. I traveled to a committee hearing in Austin – the first time I’d been to a hearing and the first time I’d been to the
