Many farmers care about soil health, water quality, and about being good neighbours to each other and to people in nearby towns and cities. But sometimes it may feel like what farmers do individually doesn’t make much of a difference.

In this episode, Zach and Mitchell talk about what it looks like when farmers start working together, as well as with others in their watersheds.

Iowa farmer Ray Gaesser, Texas A&M research scientist Liz Haney, and the ag director at the Environmental Initiative in Minneapolis, Greg Bohrer, weigh in.
