Jennifer here again!
I’m recharging the Brock Center iPad and getting ready for tomorrow’s tour! I’m not sure what I am most excited about. At 11:00 a.m. tomorrow I will meet up with some awesome food and family bloggers at the Petit Soleil dining room and embark on a two-day ag adventure. Tomorrow’s stops include Halter Ranch Vineyard for lunch and a tour, Pasolivo for a tour and tasting, Negranti Dairy and Creamery for a tour and tasting and Thomas Hill Organics Farm for a tour and dinner.
Olive oil, yum!
I’ve done a little research on the friends I am sure to meet. I work at the library on campus so research is kind of my thing. (Sidenote: At work today I helped an older gentleman research his father’s boxing career by looking at newspapers on old microforms. It was fun, but I’ll get back on track here.) Anyways, I starting reading some of the blogs of my fellow tour goers and I am really impressed by how interesting these people are and what fantastic feats they have accomplished.
Take Michelle Stern for example, owner of What’s Cooking with Kids, a certified green mobile cooking school for children and author of The Whole Family Cookbook – Celebrating the Goodness of Locally Grown Foods. Michelle has studied primate mating behavior! Not too many people can say that.
I could go on for days sharing my research and excitement, but you may not find it all as exciting as I do. Instead, I will leave you with this video of Negranti Dairy, created by some of my fellow Cal Poly agricultural communications students. I can’t way to go there!
