If you live in our area, or have followed our farm communications for a couple of years you know about our friend/ neighbor/ farm worker Kristi. In 2006 she spent the summer working on the farm with us and we couldn't have hoped for better help. We had planned to have her back for 2007, but she was involved in a very serious accident on her own farm and her life took a serious turn from the direction she thought it was headed.
We have always known that Kristi was one of those special people that everyone should be so lucky to know, but now its official. This Thursday Kristi is being awarded as a Hero of the Heartland by the American Red Cross and we couldn't be more proud of her. Here's a clip that ran on a local TV station last night leading up to Thursday's big event.
