Hancock County Farm Bureau held its annual Ag Day Breakfast Tuesday in Duncan to recognize National Ag Day and increase public awareness of agriculture’s vital role in our society.
To help the agriculture industry communicate better with its consumers, professional speaker and author Michele Payn presented an open forum discussing potential methods with over 100 ag producers.
Payn just released her second book entitled “Food Truths, From Farm to Table,” which delves into the misconceptions between farmers and consumers regarding how food and fiber products are produced, and overcoming myths regarding such products. Payn knows agriculture because she lives agriculture. Not only was she raised on a farm, she still resides on one and holds degrees in agricultural communications and animal science. Through years of research, Payn offers tips in her book on how farmers should grow the conversation between farm gate and food plate with everyone.
Payn’s new book can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and her website causematters.com.
