My 6 year old munchkin just asked me why we don't get Farmer appreciation week? Darn good question and I get little appreciations like this student made dessert all the time. Time to start a movement? #farmerappreciationweek #farmtotable @liveearthfarm #teenchefs #strawberryshortcake http://bit.ly/2IjsqEm
