Its about ag policy and advocacy with a focus on the future of food production. National Young Farmers Coalition Executive Director Lindsey Shute interviews a wide variety of activists, policymakers, experts and farmers. The show breaks down things like the farm bill and tariffs in a digestible way.    Young Farmers Podcast The internet is flooded with food photos, recipes and diet advice, partisan news, and farmer-inspired fashion, but who is listening to the farmers themselves? Farmers grow your food and manage nearly half of all land on Earth! It's time to pay attention to the policies, programs, and events that are shaping the future of agriculture. Join host Lindsey Lusher Shute, Executive Director and co-founder of the National Young Farmers Coalition, for a fresh, farmer-centric take on food and farm policy. We talk with policy makers, experts and advocates, and, of course, farmers, about the most critical issues facing farming in the United States. Lindsey has spent the past 8 years growing the NYFC movement from a few volunteers to a network of over 140,000 members and advocates. She was recognized as a “Champion of Change” by President Barack Obama, received the Glynwood “Harvest Award,” was named one of Food Tank's “20 Food Leaders Under 40,” and an “American Food Hero” by Eating Well Magazine.
