June Varner has long been an advocate of healthy farming practices.  She keeps a watchful eye on agriculture in Morrison County and she practices what she preaches on her own farm.  When she has something to say, you’d better listen, because it’s always something important.

In this week’s Morrison County Record, there is a guest editorial written by Varner called, “Hail Monsanto, we who are about to die salute you.”  If you haven’t read it, you simply must.  When Monsanto decides that genetically modified organisms aren’t good enough to feed to its own employees, you’ve gotta know in your gut that the company knows something it isn’t telling the rest of us.  They’ve got to make a buck, after all.  Too bad if we’re all collateral damage.
