Ask A Farmer

Have you ever wanted to ask a farmer more about how our food is grown? Do you want to know more about the tools and technologies that are used in farming today? Ask a farmer!

If you have a question it is a valid concern. I’ve been involved with Agriculture my entire life and still learn something new every day. So don’t feel like there is a stupid question.

In the form below, submit your question. We’ll find a farmer who can answer that question in the form of a direct email, or hopefully a blog post. So start asking! What do you want to know about our food, fiber, and fuel production?

Also, check out my blog roll with perspectives from a number of farmers and ranchers across the country.
