Young Farmers Podcast The internet is flooded with food photos, recipes and diet advice, partisan news, and farmer-inspired fashion, but who is listening to the farmers themselves? Farmers grow your food and manage nearly half of all land on Earth. It's time to pay attention to the policies, programs, and events that are shaping the future of agriculture.

Our host, Lindsey Lusher Shute, co-founder of the National Young Farmers Coalition, provides a fresh, farmer-centric take on food and farm policy. We talk with policy makers, experts and advocates, and, of course, farmers, about the most critical issues facing farming in the U.S. and globally.

Edited by Hannah Beal and recorded at Radio Kingston.

Congress Examines USDA Hemp Program Last week, the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Biotechnology, Horticulture, and Research held a hearing to examine the USDA Hemp Production Program. The subcommittee heard from a panel of producers, researchers, tribal members, and state ag commissioners that gave an overview of the hemp industry and offered insight toward the 2023 Farm Bill. Noting the absence of representatives from USDA and FDA, ranking member Jim Baird from Indiana said, “I do believe it is a missed opportunity that we don’t hear from the federal agencies tasked with implementing provisions on hemp today.” On this week’s podcast, we will listen to highlights from the hearing, including testimony from Colorado Ag Commissioner Kate Greenberg, who offers five recommendations for how Congress can provide support to federal agencies to allow for greater flexibility and improve state-run hemp programs. First on her list is removal of DEA requirements for testing labs. “Our state-of-the-art laboratory began the process of obtaining DEA certification in 2019. However, as of this hearing we still await their approval,” Greenberg said. All panel experts expressed the need for clarification from the FDA concerning the regulation and use of CBD. Also on this week’s show, we check in with Lancaster County hemp farmer and cover crop coach Steve Groff, who this week used a sickle bar mower to cut 5 acres of hemp on his farm in Holtwood, Pennsylvania. Groff’s hemp was direct-seeded in 15-inch rows, roughly 50 pounds per acre, into a cover crop of black oats and hairy vetch on May 18. The crop reached a height of 12 feet in 75 days and had not started to flower before being cut. He will rake the cut hemp into narrow swaths and turn it a few times, allowing the stalks to ret before baling with a New Holland wet baler. Lancaster Farming also talks to Morris Beegle, organizer of the fourth annual Southern Hemp Expo, taking place in Nashville Aug. 18-20.

Farm Food Focused System – Corwin Heatwole More than just good yields, successful farming increasingly needs to function in a system that connects the farm with customers looking for food that meets their desires, beyond just taste and price. Corwin Heatwole, the founder and CEO of Farmer Focus has created a system for chicken farmers that is an alternative too being large “integrator” dependent or too small to be financially viable. Farmer Focus is the #1 exclusively organic chicken company in the US, partnering with over 70 independent farmers who continue to improve the standards on raising chickens organically and humanely.
Why Skagit is Banning ‘Greenwashed’ Farmland Grab Protecting farming and some of the best farmland in the world is important to Skagitonians, as well as working to restore struggling salmon runs. Will Honea, Skagit County Senior Deputy Prosecutor, joins Dillon to explain how Seattle City Light wants to buy up Skagit delta farmland to use instead for salmon habitat projects to mitigate for its lack of fish passage on its Skagit River dams. He says it amounts to 'greenwashing' that will ultimately harm farming and fish.
Why farmers are encouraged by Supreme Court ruling on EPA emissions regulations Farmers are applauding a recent Supreme Court decision limiting EPA's ability to make regulations above and beyond the authority Congress has given it. Dan Wood, Washington State Dairy Federation Executive Director, talks with Dillon about how that could impact not only the future of EPA's efforts to restrict farming, but also the work of various other arms of the executive branch of government making onerous rules beyond their purview.
Whatcom cities agree with farmers: WA Ecology needs to support water collaboration In a recent letter to Laura Watson, Washington Department of Ecology's director, the mayors of Sumas, Nooksack, Everson, Lynden and Blaine say they're concerned Ecology's misinformation about a water rights lawsuit in the Nooksack River Basin may be leading key parties to resist collaboration toward the larger solutions for the basin's water management crisis. Everson Mayor John Perry joins Dillon to talk about the letter, and underscore the need for cooperative efforts to accomplish bigger solutions than a state water rights adjudication lawsuit can produce.
Sustainable Fertilizer Use in Agriculture – the 4 Rs – What is it? - Encore Fertilizer is fundamental to agriculture and key to feeding the world population. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are often the focus—what agronomists call crop nutrients. Yet fertilizer use can have unintended effects on soil ecosystems, water quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. So, sustainable use of fertilizer is a key issue in farm sustainability. The 4R Nutrient Stewardship program brings together agronomy, environmental science, crop planning and education to help farmers plan fertilizer use to grow their crops, save money and conserve the environment. The 4Rs stand for the Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, and Right Place for fertilizer application. McKenzie Smith, Director, Stewardship and Regulatory Affairs at Fertilizer Canada in Ottawa and Nicole Penney of FS PARTNERS out of Guelph help us explore this topic. The first of this two part exploration of the 4Rs delves into the science, training and practices within the 4Rs planning system. The next episode explores the environmental aspects and related research on the 4Rs system. (First aired in 2020).

Farming Group Voices Frustration With WA Ecology's Whatcom Water Stance Even as the farming community and others in the Nooksack River Basin continue to point out the troubling problems with their plan, the Washington State Department of Ecology continues to focus on litigation rather than collaboration to solve the local water crisis. Ag Water Board of Whatcom County administrator Henry Bierlink tells Dillon he's frustrated that Ecology isn't really hearing what the farming community is saying.
How WA Raspberry Farmers Are Promoting Their Fruit The recent Northwest Raspberry Festival took over downtown Lynden with delicious treats, vendors, entertainment and basketball games. Dillon talked to Megan Lacy with Washington Red Raspberries to not only get details on the event, but also hear what local raspberry farmers are doing to promote their tasty, nutritious fruit.
What farmers are doing to protect workers in the heat With a heat wave pushing temperatures into the triple digits in many parts of Washington, farmers and workers bringing in the harvest need to use caution to avoid heat-related illness. Pam Lewison, director of the Washington Policy Center's Initiative on Agriculture, joins Dillon to break down what farmers across the state are doing and what state law mandates to protect workers.
Joyce Family - Marquette County - 100 Years One family farm being recognized as a Century Farm at the State Fair in August belongs to Jim and Ginny Joyce. Their Marquette County farm started off as a dairy farm when it was first acquired and stayed that way for quite some time, but Jim has memories of raising and butchering chickens throughout his childhood with his 9 siblings. He explains that hard work was a core value for his family, and he shares how he once worked for an uncle all summer to earn $3 to spend at the county fair. It was hard for Jim's parents to move off the farm, but Jim and Ginny now care for the farm and hope to pass it on to their 4 daughters and 8 grandchildren someday.

Interest Rates Continue To Climb Wisconsin Bankers Association President and CEO Rose Oswald Poels joins Mid-West Farm Report for an update on today's interest rates and the appetite for agricultural loans. She says interest rates are projected to continue climbing for the sake of reducing inflation -- but notes it's anybody's guess if it's working. Home prices are still high, but the 5.25 percent interest rate for 30-year mortgages is still relatively low if you're looking to buy. In the ag community, she says farmers are focusing on operating lines of credit versus loans for land, buildings or new equipment. This is because of the uncertainty of 2023 and the high input costs in regard to fuel and fertilizer.See for privacy information.
