They've never met a farmer or had a chance to talk to a farmer or ask him questions,” said Del Bosque. “Many have never never looked at a crop of close. And so I give them that opportunity and they appreciate that because they, now they understand where their food comes from and a lot of the issues that it takes to get the food produced for them.”
