Exceptional resource!

I am a recent subscriber as I cruise podcasts looking for resources and resource material in the development of ‘Farming for Life’ agricultural center in Lynden Washington. Resources that discuss complex subjects that connect agriculture to the variety of food grown, processed, distributed and consumed. The “Why” in foods chosen including the consumers reasons and perceptions for those choices. This has been an outstanding find. Thank you for your exceptional podcast.
