Michael’s interest in and love for agricultural events and the food connected with them started
during the times he lived on his Great Grandparents farm in SE Missouri. It was added to by
experiencing the food in the French Quarter of New Orleans as child. The Iowa State Fair was
the opportunity to expand this interest during the 15 plus visits. His interests were peaked and
challenged by attending the Salon de l’Agriculture in Paris in 2005. Peaked because it is the
largest agriculture and culinary fair in the world. Challenged because he didn’t speak enough
French to be able to communicate with the farmers, producers and vendors in the booths. Farm
To Table Tours is the outcome of that experience. He wants to share with people who speak
conversational English but not conversational French the food and agriculture of France.
