Major Ag Groups Stand Up to Dannon

There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing farmers and industry groups stand up against companies profiting from fear-based marketing schemes at the expense of modern agriculture.

AmandaMy name is Amanda. I’m the proud daughter (and sister!) of conventional farmers in Southwest Michigan. I’m also a practicing attorney. For 26 years, my family ran and supplied a roadside market selling our own fresh fruits and vegetables. We now farm corn and soybeans.
