Working with the Cook County Farm Bureau, Mr. Sengstock spent three days at various farms learning more about Illinois agricultural production, science, technology, and economics. Did you know that Illinois grows more pumpkins than any other state? Did you know all milk is free of antibiotics? Have you heard of the EverCrisp apple? It’s the next big thing in the apple business. The 13 destinations on the trip included visits to a dairy farm, a beef farm, a vineyard, an apple orchard, a goat farm, a wool fiber mill, a distillery, and a dog treat factory.
