#21: The Next Generation Farmer
A Surprising Conversation
by Eric Elkin
A conversation with a sixth generation farmer goes differently than planned. An interview intended to educate listeners about food production, farming and the life of a farmer gets thrown a curve. Nostalgic perceptions of farmers conflict with the realities of the 21st Century. The “Next Generation Farmer’s” approach to farming is corporate, scientific and Millennial. The one consistency is a sense of stewardship for land, life, and blessings.
