Happy Halloween! 

I hope for many of you this means the end to a successful growing season and a bountiful harvest. To celebrate this season, we are happy to bring on a farmer who has recently started a venture in the agritourism space.

Matt Krueger of K&D Krueger Farms is a 4th generation farmer in the Red River Valley of Minnesota. Two years ago, Matt and his family decided to launch a corn maze for the people of his community.

The response has been outstanding, and Matt expects upwards of 5,000 people to attend the Valley Corn Maize this year. Matt shares his experiences in this industry, the help he has received, and the ability for families to make lifelong memories through this business.

 

You can learn more about the Valley Corn Maize here: http://www.valleycornmaize.com/

If you’re interested in contacting Matt or learning more about his overall farming operation, visit his website: http://www.kdkruegerfarms.com

Matt also mentions the assistance he has received from the The Maize Company:http://www.themaize.com

The amount of biased propaganda on the internet is incredible. Especially in this politically divisive season, we are surrounded by information that cannot fully be trusted.

Where can one go for well-researched, scientific facts? For politics: your options are slim. But for food and agriculture, we have the Center for Food Integrity. On this episode, Tim discusses objective research in agriculture, and how we can articulate truthful messages in an unbiased way.

JJ Jones grew up in Northwest Kansas and has worked in various aspects of the agriculture industry throughout his career. He now spends the majority of his time building trust in the food supply through The Center for Food Integrity. JJ is an objective, articulate, thoughtful, and well-researched advocate for best practices in food production. Enjoy this interview with JJ.

Little Herds is a non-profit organization that promotes insects as food and feed. In this episode, Robert Nathan Allen (“RNA”) describes why insects should be a larger part of our diet and feed. Also, he describes the business models of some current insect farming operations.  

Even if you’re not going to rush out and buy some cricket protein bars, the case for insects, especially for feed, is compelling. Enjoy this episode with an open mind and let me know what you think about the pros and cons of large scale insect farming.
