Strong Roots Grow Success for Beginning Farmer

From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, the USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers and landowners through our #FridaysOnTheFarmstories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.
