Michele Payn-Knoper: Holiday Advocacy

As we enter the final stretch before Christmas, it's the perfect time to think about how to put ag into your holiday season. As you give gifts and make your rounds this holiday season, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to share your farm story! Michele tells you how!

Michele Payn-Knoper is a farm girl, mom, and one of North America's leading farm and food advocates. She authored a two-sided book, No More Food Fights!, to bring civility to the conversations around the food plate. She's also a technology addict who founded #AgChat & #FoodChat. Michele resides on a small farm in Indiana with her daughter and a few head of registered Holsteins. You can find MPK at causematters.com, on Twitter @mpaynknoper or on Facebook.
