What do you think of when you hear “4-H” or “FFA”? Most people just think they’re all “farm kids” who exhibit show animals and do other “farm stuff.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Both the FFA and 4-H organizations have evolved with the times and offer a myriad of youth opportunities relevant to today’s... continue reading

Every morning for the past week, I’ve been brewing decaf coffee at home. Finally, I understood what was going on: I love a strong cup of coffee each morning.
