It’s official. What started as a grassroots effort by a group of young people to support American family farmers and ranchers has become an official non-profit organization. I Love Farmers...They Feed My Soul elected its first board of directors on Sept. 29 in San Luis Obispo, CA. The new board ratified its operational by-laws.
The newly elected board includes, president Megan Brownell of Nipomo, CA; vice-president Luke DeGroot of Fresno, CA; secretary Mindy Burris of Denair, CA; treasurer Brean Bettencourt of Turlock, CA; and Cody Penfold of Kingsburg, CA.

Additionally, they were angry at the way agriculture is often wrongly portrayed in the mass media and political campaigns.
