On the Farm Author Experience



See what some of the authors had to say about this amazing event.


The 2016 event was held Thursday January 7th through Sunday, January 10th in Orlando, Florida. Meet the authors selected! 


This year’s focus was exploring life on the cattle ranch and beef production in the U.S. We were excited about open dialogue, exploration and enriching creative time! Authors toured farms and ranches, engaged in open dialogue with real farmers and ranchers, connected with men and women involved in food production from across the nation at the American Farm Bureau Annual Convention, and explored how you can enrich your storytelling about the history and heritage of food production in our nation.


Authors visited Buckhead Beef processing facility in Florida. 


Authors then went to Country Oaks Angus Ranch to meet with the Freel family and learn about their beef operation. 




Authors also got to have lunch with real American ranchers and then had a panel discussion with them.
