Lots of Smiles Captured, Lessons Learned During #AFBF14

My Instagram feed has been busy the last several days as have my Twitter and Facebook pages. There have been dozens of photos of smiling faces sent from San Antonio as I have experienced the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention.

It’s amazing how many friends I have made scattered all around the country. Thanks to these folks & others (a bunch of who are now dear friends), I have real faces of farmers to go with so many of the foods I have always enjoyed. I also have a better appreciation of the ways they are involved in their local communities, understanding the stresses they farm under and more.

Thanks to all of you who make agriculture feel a lot like home for this city girl! Here are some of those folks I snapped & shared photos of over the last few days with a long-time favorite song!

How are you sharing your story of AFBF 14 with those who didn’t have a chance to attend?
