TBF 017 :: An Interview with Luke Gran of Practical Farmers of Iowa, Updates, and a Hard Lesson Learned


With the exception of the first episode (because I was excited to finally get The Beginning Farmer Show going) this is probably the episode that I have most looked forward to releasing. Last week I had the opportunity to sit down with Luke Gran of Practical Farmers of Iowa. Mr. Gran is the “Next Generation Coordinator” for PFI and has his hands in organizing a lot of great learning opportunities for beginning and experienced farmers! On todays show we have a wide ranging discussion covering everything from the definition of a beginning farmer to what the most identified needs of beginners are. If you are not familiar with PFI I would suggest you get over to their website today and check out the great information they have available … whether you live in Iowa or not!

    Great learning about the Practical Farmers of Iowa. Being from Indiana I had never heard of this group before and have found an enormous wealth of info on their website. I’m looking forward to digging through all of it.

    Keep up the good work. I’m sure to listen every Wednesday on my drive home from work.
