Knowledgeable and Informative

Farm Traveler is both knowledgeable and informative. Listening to the many guest has been eye opening. The knowledge I’ve gained has given me a greater appreciation for farmers. I especially like to hear how my food goes from the farm to my table. Each episode is enlightening.

Incredible source of ag knowledge

I just came across this podcast and I’m totally hooked! It’s great for people who are curious about agriculture and our food system in America. It highlights so many different perspectives on food, from farmers to litigators. So well done. Can’t wait for more episodes
