Description

Food is a common language that we all share; we all have our favorite meals, deserts, and guilty pleasure snacks. That food didn't magically appear in a grocery store or on your plate, it was cultivated by the hardworking men and women behind the scenes in the agriculture and food science industries. Join host Trevor Williams as he interviews farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, and others to learn about the processes, technology, and science behind food production.
