In today’s video, I am in Ontario, Canada touring a wonderful family cranberry farm. We love to eat cranberries with Christmas dinner and I wanted to find out where they come from and how they get to my table. The Johnston family has been farming cranberries since the 1950s and they have an amazing family operation. I learned that first, they dry harvest cranberries and then they flood the fields to float the cranberries to the surface and they harvest them. The whole cranberry operation is really fascinating. It is interesting that they also make wines and jellies too to diversify their operation if they are affected by low harvest or prices. I really enjoyed being in the cranberry fields because they are so different from how we farm in Montana! The biggest difference is how much water they have compared to our Montana farm. There is water everywhere!!! I hope you like my video and thank you for watching!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!

Hello. My name is Kate Stephens, and I am a 17-year-old 4th generation Montana farmer. My family has been farming wheat in north-central Montana since my great grandfather immigrated from Denmark in 1912 and homesteaded our land. My family has been teaching me about farming since I was two years old. I run one of the combines on the farm at harvest. I believe that it is important for everyone to know where their food comes from and the families who produce it. I love our farm, and I hope that my Farm to Fashion and Farm to Table products can help educate people about where their food comes from in a fun way. That is how Kate’s Ag – Farm to Fashion became a reality. I hope you love my products as much as I do because this is an extension of our farm and the grains we have been growing to feed other families for over one hundred years.
