My name is Gracie Weinzierl, and I’m a farmer’s daughter from Central Illinois eager to educate and advocate about agriculture. I was raised on a small corn and soybean farm, and was involved in 4-H for 11 years as a member and now going on my 3rd year as a leader. I love presenting about agriculture and making it hands-on and easy to understand. I live off the farm now, since I just landed a job at a PR agency in St. Louis. I also adopted two kittens from the farm, named B and Boo.
I am a recent graduate of Illinois State University, where I majored in Agriculture Communications & Leadership and Crop & Soil Science. In college, I was involved with organizations such as Sigma Alpha (a professional agriculture sorority), Alpha Zeta (an agriculture honors fraternity), Collegiate Farm Bureau, and was an Honors student. I love to sew, cook, and shop. I’m a Pin-aholic, and you’ll find lots of links to my blog and other ag sites, craft projects, and recipes on my Pinterest boards.
I created this blog to make agriculture make sense for you, the consumer. Check out the site to find answers to your questions about where your food comes from.
