It seems like whenever agriculture is discussed in mainstream media, the headlines are primarily negative. At our recent LIFT Summit, almost every partner or guest presenter expressed a desire for farming to be portrayed in a positive light, and we completely agree.
We want to show some appreciation for ag bloggers that are doing a great job of spreading positive messages about all the wonderful things farmers are doing to feed the world. Check out these awesome farmer blogs below:
