Meet: One of America's Farmers-The Pistorius FamilyThursday, May 29, 2014
After reading the stories about America's Farmers, The Pistorius Family caught my eye. Yesterday I shared a recipe featuring a delicious snack made with organic corn kernels! Meet the Pistorius family:
"We treat every field as if it were the only field we farm, doing our best to maximize profitability while maintaining excellent stewardship of the land." -- Pete Pistorius
“Technology is such a big part of farming, and I think that we are constantly learning and growing – it’s not unlike other professions. Farmers are always trying to learn about new techniques and update their equipment.”– Megan Pistorius
Currently, Pete and his father Tim oversee the day to day operations along with a brother in law. Pete's wife, Megan, takes care of the household while Pete is out working the field. Pete and Megan have three girls and a young son that he hopes will have interest in farming when he's older. I love to see farming families carry on the tradition through generations!
Thanks to all our American Farmers for providing us with delicious organic options as well as passing on good morals and values through your generations!
peace, love & coffee,
