What do you see as the most topical food trends?
|My kids love grocery shopping with me, |
especially when they get their own cart!
How do you think farmers have responded to these changing food trends?

as part of the CommonGround program in Washington DC
New food trends have also created new demands and changing markets for farmers. I personally believe in and love that we have food choices in America. Because we have food choices, there are some farmers that have changed their farming practices to meet those new demands like, planting high-oleic soybean soybeans, raising crops and livestock USDA organic certified, creating direct-sales markets, etc.
As a Millennial, what are you doing to be part of the food trend discussion?

I can relate to other Millennials because we have similar interests and goals. I want to provide a healthy diet for my family and I have the same idealism of wanting to make the world a better place. That is why we are always looking at new technologies and research so we can make our farm sustainable for the next generation. We want to make the best choices and decisions for our farm so our land and animals are the best and healthiest they can be.
