Episode 04: The State of Farming in America and The Farm Economy

May 19, 2020, 08:00 AM
With COVID-19, we have witnessed a tremendous demand for food and we have seen the fragility of our overall food system. We wanted to go straight to the farm gate and talk with farmers at the front line about how they are managing through this crisis. We also wanted to learn about their operation and how they think about innovation and leadership.

We're discussing the current state of farming in America and how two farm businesses are doing in today’s environment. We are joined by Ryan Weeks of Weeks Family Farms, a fifth-generation farmer from Nebraska and Justin Bruch, President and Founder of Clear Frontier Ag Management and a fifth-generation farmer from Iowa.
