Although her family has used John Deere tractors for generations, LaVell Winsor keeps a startling amount of green-and-yellow colored products in her kitchen and around her residence as part of a testament to the agricultural company, according to the Lawrence Journal World.
Happy to be a farm wife, Winsor wants to share what she knows as part of a program that is geared towards dispelling misconceptions about conventional farming, the news source reported.
According to the World, Winsor is part of a campaign backed by the United Soybean Board and the National Corn Growers Association known as "CommonGround".
"We see that in a grocery store it is usually the women and moms of the family doing the grocery shopping. So what better way to connect with the consumer than farm moms, who grow the same food they put on the table?" DeEtta Bohling, a communications specialist for the Kansas Corn Commission, rhetorically asked in an interview.
The CommonGround program is a national effort that is reliant on applications from local communities for participation, as it helps to assist initiatives for the development of urban agriculture, according to the program's website.
