NC State debuts 'Farms, Foods and You'

Guests include farmers and others in food and agriculture; university experts in agriculture, rural development and economics; and state government officials.

With consumer interest in food and farming on the rise, NC State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has launched a new podcast focusing on timely issues related to agriculture and agribusiness.

The first two episodes of Farms, Food and You focused on the implications of COVID-19 for the pork supply and on steps the restaurant industry and NC State are taking to ensure safety as dining areas reopen following easing of stay-at-home orders in North Carolina. New episodes are on the way, with topics ranging from the state of agriculture and agribusiness in North Carolina to the challenges and opportunities facing local food enterprises.

Guests include farmers and others involved food and agriculture industries; university experts in areas such as agriculture, rural development and economics; and state government officials.

Host Dee Shore is a longtime NC State University communication specialist and writer on agriculture and, food and nutrition, and environmental and life sciences.
