The Farm Report

Learn about the people, processes, and policies that shape how food is produced today, from the latest agricultural innovations to the day-to-day challenges of running a viable business growing vegetables and grazing cattle. Host Lisa Elaine Held is an experienced journalist who covers food, agriculture, and the environment for Civil Eats, The Guardian, and many other publications. On The Farm Report, she engages in conversations with farmers, farmworkers and the people who work alongside them—like chefs, researchers, activists, and investors. Expect from-the-field insights paired with real-world context as guests explore how producing fresh, delicious food relates to environmental and community sustainability, equality and justice, politics and policy, and better health.
