August 5, 2021 | Lydia Zerby

More than 100,000 food and health-minded Iowans discovered the latest issue of Fresh Pickings magazine in their mailboxes and email inboxes this week.

Now in its 10th issue, the Iowa Food & Family Project’s (Iowa FFP) seasonal print publication makes farm life accessible, interesting and relevant to consumers statewide through personable editorial, bite-sized facts and stunning photography. 

The latest issue showcases how rural and urban Iowans are working together on water quality, invites readers to take road trips that celebrate agriculture and Iowa’s delicious food, dives into summer on the farm with fifth-generation farmer Amy Nelson, and follows a century of soybeans in Iowa paired with a tour of Living History Farms. Plus, Iowa State University’s Dr. Ruth McDonald answers common questions about food myths.
