Sharing the story of agriculture just got a little easier, thanks to Illinois corn farmer, Justin Durdan. He spent 2016 filming 360 degree, panoramic, season-long action shots of his family’s corn and soybean farm in Lasalle County, and now the four-video series is ready for sharing on your social media feeds.
You can link to these videos at www.watchusgrow.org/home-grown-corn to help your off-farm friends understand what happens to their food. The videos feature a Chicago-area radio personality and a self-proclaimed “city girl” who ask questions for Durdan to answer.
“We know consumers have questions about farming,” Durdan says. “The goal with these videos is to answer those questions and let consumers see for themselves what we do on our farm.”
