Katy Keiffer hosts an incredibly informative conversation on the 2012 Farm Bill with esteemed guest and founder of FGE Food & Nutrition Team, Fern Gale Estrow. Fern explains what challenges come along with trying to create a Farm Bill that looks out for our small farmers while cooperating with the large agricultural systems already in place in our country. Tune in and hear a new perspective on the complicated ideas, policies and politics involved with the Farm Bill. Learn why commodity price support is not always such a bad thing, and how compensating farmers appropriately is not always as easy as it sounds. Also on the show, Susan Hunt Stevens, Steve Pope & Frank Reese. This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch, the nations largest single source supplier of grassfed and grass finished beef.
