I’m so excited, because today, we’re talking with Emily Best, an apprentice farmer from New Morning Farm in Central Pennsylvania, & her farming situation is so unique, I can’t wait for you to hear about it!

Emily Best

But first, let me explain just a little about how this series works.

Each episode of ‘Where Does My Food Come From?’, will feature a food host.  A product, company, or store that supplies you with your food, and ties in with the farmer we’re interviewing in that episode.

The farmers grow it… our food hosts are where you’ll find it.

Here’s the exciting part,… the food host for each post will be giving away food products or gift certificates to one of our readers!

All you have to do is listen to the interview, & leave a comment on the blog, letting us know what you learned, or your favorite part of the interview.  When you do, you’ll automatically be entered in a random drawing for whatever the food host giveaway is for that post.

For our inaugural edition, this week’s food host is… us, Farver Farms!  And we’re giving away $50 in cold, hard cash!

We want you to go out & purchase your favorite food.  Whether that’s from a farm stand, a farmers market, a specialty store, or your local grocery store.  American Agriculture provides you with the safest, most abundant, least expensive food in the world.  Purchase it with confidence & enjoy what you eat!

We’ll be choosing a winner randomly on Monday from those who leave a comment, so don’t forget to do that—you could win $50 cash!

All right,  let’s get started… just push play below to hear my interview with Emily!  (The actual interview starts about 2 minutes in)

I hope you were able to listen to the entire interview with Emily Best from New Morning Farm. She’s such a forward thinker, & so passionate about food production!  I loved her thoughts about farming mindfully, and creating conversations about farming and farming practices.  And I hope you found you have something in common with her as well.  Emily is your farmer!

If you have more questions for Emily & would like to connect with her, you can find her here:

And remember, this week we’re giving away $50 for you to purchase your favorite food!  Leave a comment below, letting us know what you learned in our interview with Emily, and you’ll be entered in the drawing for a $50 in cold, hard, cash!

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for joining us,.. & make sure you join us next week for another #meetmyfarmer edition of ‘Where Does My Food Come From?’.

    I was raised on a farm, and worked with farmers in my job before I retired. I always loved hearing their stories and I always seemed to learn something new. I visited the state of Pennsylvania a few years ago, went to the Amish colonies and was amazed at their methods of farming and regular household chores! We are always trying new ways, mostly healthy, in cooking our meats and vegetables. I found it interesting how Emily’s farm is approx. 40 acres, compared to the size of our farms in my area. They do have an awesome operation! I wish we had more Farmer’s Markets in our area. It’s nice to know where our food come from!
