New Holland ZimmPollOur latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What’s your favorite way to eat peanut butter?”

It’s official…you can put peanut butter on anything. We had votes all over the board with this poll. But it is clear people like peanut butter. Some of the top ‘others’ we got included apples and toast.

Here are the poll results:

  • PB & J – 19%
  • Crackers – 8%
  • On a spoon – 11%
  • With celery – 8%
  • Cookies – 14%
  • Candy – 3%
  • Pie – 3%
  • Ice Cream – 6%
  • Pancakes/waffles – 6%
  • Other – 22%

Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, What do you think of Right to Farm laws?

Missouri just narrowly passed a constitutional amendment on the right to farm and North Dakota has had one for two years. Is this necessary or is agriculture over-reacting?

  1. Right to Farm has been part of the California constitution for years, and thank goodness it is. Granted, we have a different situation being the most populous state in the nation. However, people are notorious for moving to the most agriculturally rich areas because they like the scenery or are those who buy homes on the outside of urban sprawl. Many farmers whose families have owned their property for generations without a problem now know that many days will include a visit from the cops or sheriff because someone will complain about the dust, noise, smell, or concern over whatever has been applied to a field. The officer always sides with the farmer because Right to Farm saves us. States that are more rural don’t have to worry about this as much as we do right now, but California was once very rural, too. You never know what will happen as the population increases and it’s better to have that insurance built into your laws now while you have the power to do so.
