Having grown up on a prairie farm, Kimberley Veness learned to love land, animals and growing food.

It's full of interesting and startling facts about agriculture around the world. Veness covers everything from the biggest farm in the world to how many pesticides are in a single grape. She lives in Adams Lake, B.C.
