Life is full of tough decisions. After 4.5 years working in marketing at a large global agriculture company, I recently made the decision to pursue another opportunity. The decision didn’t come easy, but sometimes you have to take a risk and seize a new opportunity. So I’m excited to share that I will now be working with Alberta farmers to promote a key provincial crop, barley.
As most of you know, I’m a farm girl and I love agriculture. I love getting out of the office, and meeting and talking to farmers. I’m excited to meet Alberta farmers and help them seize barley’s potential. I also love helping people connect farm and food. I feel each person working in agriculture needs to do their part to help urban consumers, including children, better understand modern agriculture including where our food and drink comes from. So I’m looking forward to teaching people the basics of barley.
Along with this, in the coming months I’m going to feature a new series on my blog called Barley Basics where I’ll talk about what is barley, how it’s grown, what it’s used for and more. And of course I’ll share some tasty barley recipes made by yours truly. If you’ve always wanted to learn more about barley, here’s your chance.
So here’s to another exciting, new adventure. Cheers!
