In partnership with Keeping Ag Real, Drovers and AgWeb are following the host Jenny Schweigert beginning Saturday, July 21, as she and her family embark on the first Keeping Ag Real Road Trip.
Jenny is host of the Keeping Ag Real podcast, which provides a portal to people involved in agriculture, those questioning agriculture and those enjoying agriculture. The goal of the road trip is to provide their children with new aspects of agriculture while also sharing the experience with the world.
Jenny and her husband Jeff, a fourth-generation dairy breeder and electrician, are raising their three sons on a small hobby farm in Illinois with a flock of sheep. Additionally, they are involved with her in-law’s farm, Maple Lawn Jersey Farm where they raise replacement dairy heifers, corn, soybeans and hay.
