I am a husband, father, and grandfather. One of my strongest interests is in the welfare of my wife, children, grandchildren, and other children. Teaching them the knowledge I gained in life is one of my priorities. I think it is our duty to pass on our knowledge and experiences to the younger generation. Growing up on a farm was one of my life experiences. I worked hard but I also had fun working on the farm. I learned excellent values on the farm and how it is all connected to life.
I spent my professional adult life as a Field Engineer, Salesperson for office equipment companies and operating my own office equipment company. I am also on the board of a non-profit organization that helps farmers find new avenues to sell their products. We also assist farmers to become organically certified and introduce them to new crops they can grow.
As I got older, I began to think about farming again and realize that most people have no idea of what farming is all about. Our children are removed from farming in so many ways. This is when I decided it is my duty to give something to our young children. I hope this book will awaken a thirst for more knowledge of farming, a greater appreciation for our farmers and healthier eating.
