Today I am in NYC participating in the “Food Dialogues”, a discussion with farmers and ranchers in four US locations about food and farming. The program is sponsored by the US farmers and ranchers alliance.
Right now Secretary Vilsack is speaking with host Claire Shipman. He says “diversity makes sense..we need all kinds of agriculture (big, small, conventional, organic) to drive the rural economy. We need to try to figure out how to help all aspects of agriculture because agriculture helps all of us.”
In an hour the NYC panel will answer questions about consumer issues.
