Why I Farm: Sarah Leonard, Fauquier County

Sarah Leonard, Fauquier County Farm Bureau member, is featured on  ‘Why I Farm’

Natalina Sents, a recent agricultural business graduate from Iowa State University, has embarked on a year-long trip to learn about why farmers farm in all 50 states. Sents visited Virginia a few weeks ago and interviewed several Virginia Farm Bureau members.

Sents is a former marketing intern for Beck’s Hybrids, the largest family-owned retail seed company in the United States and sponsor of the Why I Farm Movement. She approached the company in December 2015 to tell them about the travel-and-blogging project she had brainstormed for two years. Beck’s was immediately on board.

She started the Why I Farm Roadtrip on May 15 and plans to meet farmers in all 50 states by May 30, 2017.
