A Tegner ,

I have learned so much!

This podcast completely opened my eyes to all the misnomers out there in relation to farming and the source of our food - whether we are talking organic products, food labels, labor laws, and big grocery stores. Hearing from the “horses mouth” on the processes, nuances, family stories and political dynamics surrounding farming is imperative if you fancy yourself a savvy informed urban dweller. Give this a listen and challenge what you digest as true information when it comes to what we put in our mouth.
