I’m a Farm Wife… and I hate GMOs.

What is so bad about GMO’s? I am a big believer in GMO labeling but not everyone agrees. This is a hot topic and it can be hard to cut to the truth. I ran across this honest and wonderfully written essay by a GMO Farmer’s Wife who explains the issue with clarity and heart. It’s nice to hear the story from an insider. The comments following the essay are pretty interesting too…

I’m a Farm Wife. And I Hate GMOs.

I’m a farm wife – of a grain farmer. A GMO grain farmer. There’s been a lot of heated debates about GMOs lately, as there should be, and it seems like I hear the same things repeated over and over in our agricultural community. If you’re against GMOs, you’re against farmers. If you’re against GMOs, you must be some yuppie woman from the city who drops her children off at their charter school, hits up her organic market, and goes back to her 7th floor flat to practice her internet activism against GMOs. If you are that mom, no offense, and the movement can certainly use you, provided that you really do your research and don’t quote things from NaturalNews without first making sure they are entirely unbiased and true. 🙂

You’d be hard pressed to find someone who loves agriculture…
