"This blog is a great opportunity for people all over Michigan to learn about where their food comes from, directly from the farmer," said Alex Henry, Michigan Ag Council Intern. "Not everyone has the chance to live on a farm, or even visit a farm, so Farm Fresh Food will bring the farm to them."  The Michigan Ag Council is a coalition of Michigan commodity organizations and agribusinesses working together to support modern agriculture by informing and educating consumers about contemporary agricultural production practices.
