Legacy Ag Credit invites anyone interested in agriculture or consumer sciences to the Sulphur Springs Country Club Tuesday, September 22 at 5:30 p.m. for a Fajita dinner and special guest speaker, Michelle Payne-Knoper, a widely aclaimed agriculture advocate and author of “No More Food Fights”. Joseph Crouch with Legacy Ag Credit calls Payn-Knoper highly passionate about agriculture. Her book will be given to all who attend.
Payn-Knoper lives on a family dairy. She advocates the necessity of agriculture and consumers having a conversation about food and “why we do what we do on the farm side.” As a mother, she understands the necessity of quality food for her family as well as the challenges to the producer. In a phone interview with her, she stated that her dairy cattle are the view from her office. An award winning holsten breeder since she was nine (9) years old, her daughter is following in mom’s footsteps. Payn-Knoper as a mom has the same experiences at the grocery store that all mom’s have.
She will share her farm life story during the event.
Crouch said Legacy Ag Credit works in a chartered 10-county area and this event will celebrate agriculture.
KSST interviewed Crouch and Payn-Knoper recently regarding the event.
