Those stories and we go "Out to Lunch" with John Norwood who is running to become the next Secretary of Agriculture for the State of Iowa. We kick off our conversation with "Quick Bites" three questions each of our guests get and you can listen to his answers to our three questions by clicking the player.
Then we get into an amazing conversation about a host of issues impacting Iowa and consumers. Everything from soils to water to population losses, to alternative crops, how to get more farmers into farming and more. He also talks about the Iowa Farm Bill that wraps so much of this together. Even if you don't live on a farm or in Rural Iowa this is a powerful conversation about new ideas and direction.
