I pretty much just listen to podcasts all day while working in the field and this one has definitely become one of my favorites. As far as farming podcasts go, this one is outstanding. I wish there were more like it! Even with the farming aspect removed, it is still a great podcast because you get invested in the stories of the subjects, they just happen to all be young farmers. Once you start listening you'll be hooked!
This podcast is so inspiring to me. There aren't many farming podcasts out there and this one is by far the best. Kudos to Texas Young Farmers Coalition for going the extra mile to connect and inspire all farmers, eaters, and podcast junkies! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great new podcast to get hooked on ;)
