Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Because my children have the right to learn where food comes from. That chickens lay eggs, that bees make honey, that fruits and veggies come from the earth with hard work and good treatment. That even though animals are kept for food that they deserve dignity and respect. Also it is much cheaper to keep your own free range chickens for eggs than it is to buy the eggs at the store and keep bees for honey.

    What an honor to be farmer of the day! Brightened my day as I sit here too sunburnt to move. The sunburn came from working my urban farm so it was worth it.

    Love your name. Had a great grandfather from Sweden with the name of Olof. Takes me back to my history. Keep up the great work with the family. Voted for you.
