LaVell Winsor, who farms with her husband near Topeka, Kansas, is passionate about sharing where food comes from and how farmers practice care and respect for the land and their animals. The conversation is critical to the future of agriculture, since most Americans are several generations removed from the farm. LaVell believes it’s vital that farmers share personal stories with the public. When she’s not talking about agriculture with folks off-the-farm, LaVell works as a commodity broker, and has worked with farmers in risk management for over 12 years. She also spent 3 years working with farmers in succession planning focusing on farm financial analysis. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org
