Across the Table: Oh My Cupcake! Toppings

Hungry for Truth‘s web series Across the Table is back! These series focus on bringing you the facts on hot topics around food and farming in South Dakota.

SPOILER ALERT: Cuteness overload! 

It’s time for our latest episode of Across the Table. Host Melissa Johnson from Oh My Cupcakes! shares some of her favorite kid-friendly cupcake toppings with local farmer John Horter and his son Dane for a fun, springtime activity. Plus, Melissa talks with John about why sustainability matters so much in farming.

As a fifth-generation farmer who wants to pass on the farming tradition to his kids, John knows how important it is to take care of his land so he can leave it for future generations. From using new technologies to implementing advanced farming practices, farmers like John continually find new and more effective ways to ensure their farm is in better shape than they found it.

Watch the full episode to find out about how John uses some of those technologies and practices, like GMOs, responsible pesticides use and conservation practices, on his farm.

If you can’t get enough of Dane’s cuteness, you can watch his adorable harvest crop report from last fall.
