U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) is happy to share a new video series featuring farmers explaining how they responsibly manage the land and natural resources entrusted to their care.
“Stories of Stewardship” premiered Jan. 10, 2024, on Facebook with Episode 1 focusing on the sustainable practices applied by five farm families growing different classes of wheat across the range of conditions in the United States. They share a commitment to farm in ways that sustain economic viability to produce safe, wholesome wheat for the world while ensuring the land is passed on in better condition for future generations.
Watch Episode 1 here and stay tuned as five new episodes are released Jan. 24, Feb. 7, Feb. 21, March 6, and March 20.
