This giveaway is closed. Congrats to Lyndi and Adriana!
Since coming to Arkansas seventeen (SEVENTEEN???) years ago, I have really grown to love this place and have grown to appreciate the local agriculture. I can recall driving by a field about 12 years ago and saying to my husband, “Those snaky looking things in that field look cool.” He looked at me with a bit of horror, a bit of wonderment and a touch of pity and asked, “Are you referring to the rice levees?”
Needless to say I have come a long way and now find myself participating in the farm community tradition of evaluating other farmers fields. I can discuss the quality of soil when the fields are disced up in the spring. I can tell whether a particular rice or soybean field has been sprayed based on the amount of scrubby weeds growing. I was genuinely excited when a Dumas, Arkansas farmer verified he had gotten over 100 bushels of soybeans per acre in August. I’ll also come out and admit that I have even caught myself listening to the farm report on the radio from time to time.
Todays’ giveaway includes two really cool products, a cookbook from the Arkansas Beef Council and a sample bag of Arkansas’ own Riceland Rice. Each winner (there will be 2) will also receive a MYSTERY surprise in their gift package!
