There is no better way to raise children, in my opinion. I think farming makes a kid understand were their food is coming from. Especially since if you ask many people were their food is comming from......they tell you "The Store". As a farmers daughter, I can truely say that living on a farm gave me responsibility as well as making me thankful that the weather turned out great for haying season or whatever. Kids these days seem to be too ingulfed in their video games and their I-Pods. It scares me when im in high school and hear the most ignorant comments about agricultural science and the way of life of a farmer. Kids just don't understand these days. They just don't seem to care, not all kids think that, but the majority don't even know where that slab of steak on there plate came from, who raised it, and "What am I really Eating?" But I believe that those who are fortunate enough to live on a farm are lucky. I also believe those who don't live on a farm should take their children to one, so they can see where certain foods really come from.
