In agriculture, we often talk about the disconnect between consumers and the farm. Most consumers are further removed from how their food is produced than generations before. Martin Otto, chief operating officer of Texas-based supermarket chain H-E-B, and Arizona vegetable grower John Boelts joined American Farm Bureau Federation Vice President of Communications Terri Moore to talk about the opportunity to share agriculture’s story and connect with people outside of farmers’ fencerows. The podcast was recorded live from AFBF’s Annual Convention in Austin.

You can access Farmside Chat several ways. The podcast is available on the AFBF website, as well as through iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, SoundCloud and Stitcher. Most podcast services allow you to subscribe to or follow a podcast so that when there’s a new episode, it will automatically download to the podcast platform.
