You probably read the title and thought “Farmers markets? Locavore? Gardening?”. Well those are all great things, but I’m actually talking about the newest blog sharing farmers’ stories in Michigan! The ‘Farm Fresh Food’ blog launched March 1 and is a great way for agriculturalists in the state to share their stories.
Hosted on MLive.com, the blog will feature posts from farmers in all segments of Michigan agriculture. Topics will range from on-farm activities to how a busy mom can clean out the pantry. It’s really a great way to show the diversity of both Michigan agriculture and Michigan farmers (surprise – they’re just like most people in a lot of aspects!).
I would encourage you to check out the blog at http://blog.mlive.com/freshfood/index.html and leave your thoughts in the comments section. I can’t wait to see what people think and I look forward to all the agvocating that these farmer-bloggers will be doing!
**Note: If you’re a Michigan farmer (large or small!) who would be interested in blogging, let me know!
