Each time we do "Out to Lunch" with a thought leader we kick things off with "Quick Bites". Three questions that are always the same. We ask about an important book, a great movie and what our guest might consider a dream job. Today we take John Norwood "Out to Lunch" at Gilroy's Kitchen + Pub + Patio and ask him those questions as a warm up for our in depth dive into the future of agriculture. You see, John is running to become the next Secretary of Agriculture for Iowa and he has so much to share but first..."Quick Bites".
We love taking thought leaders "Out to Lunch" and talk about the issues that impact millions. Today our lunch guest is John Norwood who is running to become the next Secretary of Agriculture for the State of Iowa. Here we take a deep dive into one of the biggest businesses in the Hawkeye State...farming. We'll talk about current farming practices, soil, water, population troubles in rural counties, how to save the family farm, alternative crops that matter, how to get more farmers into the business and his idea of an Iowa Farm Bill that wraps so much of this together. Some stunning ideas from John Norwood. Take a listen!
