Farmers offer newborns gift baskets
Local farmers welcomed the newest bundles of joy to Kishwaukee Community Hospital and Valley West Community Hospital during National Agriculture Week, March 17-23. All new babies born during the week received gift baskets filled with an assortment of ag-related products compliments of local farmers, ag groups and the DeKalb County Farm Bureau.
Farm Bureau partnered with the hospital to commemorate National Agriculture Week and create an awareness of agriculture’s significance in our everyday lives.
“It all begins at birth. Babies are introduced to agriculture by the products they eat, wear and use,” said Mariam Wassmann, director of information for the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, “and it’s our hope that in their adult life they develop an understanding of the origins of their food and fiber.”
