About the Podcast

Farm Answers
For Beginning Farmers & Ranchers
The Farm Answers podcast takes a deeper look at projects funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (USDA-NIFA BFRDP) and how they are reaching beginning farmers and ranchers.

In each episode, we sit down and talk with project directors… as they share their stories and discuss how their project has made a lasting impact on beginning farmers and ranchers.

Join us as we learn more about the people and projects helping to ensure the long-term success of US agriculture.
