Licencing of Seed,GMO’s,etc.


I was asked what I knew about this subject. I thought it would be easier to put in a post.  This subject has me freaked-out and is maybe why I’m defiantly trying to do and make my own everything. Hubby and I have a farming background. We grew grain and seed crops for several years. […]
