Have you ever wondered how a sugarbeet is harvested, ultimately showing up in our houses as beautiful sugar for all our favorite recipes?
Charlie Bauer, a Michigan farmer from the Thumb, hosted a ridealong with program coordinator Elaine Bristol. Virtually step inside the harvester cab and hear about sugarbeet harvest directly from a Michigan farmer!
The Q&A with Charlie included:
- What happens to a Michigan Sugar Company sugarbeet from growing in the field to what’s found on a store shelf
- The difference between sugar from sugarbeets, sugarcane or GMO sugarbeets
- One example of farmers protecting Michigan’s environment
- What keeps farmers motivated to continue in a farm business
