Farm Traveler

Farm Traveler is a podcast for people who want to connect with their food and those who grow it. Thanks to direct-to-consumer businesses, agritourism, and social media, it's now easier than ever to learn how our food is made and support local farmers. Here on the Farm Traveler podcast, we want to connect you with businesses offering direct-to-consumer products you can try at home, agritourism sites you can visit with your family, and exciting new technologies that are changing how your food is being grown. Listen to weekly episodes as host Trevor Williams interviews farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, and other experts in the agriculture industry, and be sure to check out www.thefarmtraveler.com for more!
