Farmers and ranchers across the country work tirelessly every day to produce food for the U.S. and the world, but there can be a disconnect between what consumers hear about their food and the facts. Through social media, there is a growing opportunity for farmers and ranchers to connect directly with consumers to dispel misconceptions about food and share agriculture’s story.

On this episode of Farmside Chat Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall chats with Tara Vander Dussen and Natalie Kovarik, hosts of the Discover Ag podcast to discuss how they’re elevating ag and helping farmers and ranchers tell their stories.

Social media has given us a great tool to open up our farms and invite people virtually onto our farms.


Farmside Chat takes a closer look at modern farming in America, explores the latest agricultural innovations and brings listeners right alongside the people who are growing our food, fuel and fiber. On this twice-monthly podcast, AFBF President Duvall chats with farmers, leaders, and lawmakers around the country about what goes into growing a safe and sustainable food supply.
