Continuing to catch up on last couple months… I recently interviewed Bluffton farmer Greg Probst at his “Century Farm” for a local newspaper article. He grows everything organically, has free-range chickens (no antibiotics), etc., etc., etc… He said he believes he is farming “God’s way.” I do too. As we have traveled, we have regularly stopped, and sometimes worked at, various organic farms. On a stop in Oberlin, Ohio, I met with author David Orr, who is also the head of Oberlin College’s Environmental Science Department. In his book Earth in Balance, he writes that artificial toxic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers are creating “chemical cocktails” that are exploding into all sorts of disease in our bodies, including cancer. One in three Americans now get cancer in a lifetime. That’s not happening in a vacuum. Common sense says we should stop using these toxic chemicals, and our agriculture platform goes into this in depth.
