Starting a dialogue just as I've described is exactly what the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance are trying to enable.

You can read about this breakfast on the blog Eating Bender: A Conversation with Farmers and Ranchers. Jenn writes about her experience meeting the folks that are out there in the world of agriculture.
