Kickoff General Session
Talking About Sustainable Ag: Farmer to Farmer
The business of farming is changing fast and pressures on farmers are mounting, especially around stewardship of land and water. Mitchell Hora, co-host of Field Work podcast
, will share some of the experiences about sustainable agriculture discussed on the show: what’s worked, what hasn't and why. He’ll also discuss how attitudes of others in the supply chain can influence whether farmers feel comfortable enough to try out new practices.
Mitchell Hora is a farmer and young entrepreneur from Washington, Iowa. His family has farmed in the area for over 100 years and has a strong focus on conservation. When Mitchell is not working with his father on their row crop farm, he runs a consulting company, Continuum Ag, and hosts a podcast focused on soil health.
