Moms headed to Soybean fields
Nine Chicago-area moms will grow soybeans in their backyards and on their patios, as a hands-on experiment in producing one of Illinois' most important agricultural crops. The urban moms are being guided by Ron and Deb Moore of Roseville, Ill., who raise soybeans and corn on 1,000 acres. The experiment is part of an Illinois Farm Families initiative to open our farm doors, show consumers how we grow your food, and answer your questions about food and farming.
