I have been wanting to talk to today’s podcast guest for over a year!  Natalie Kovarik is a Nebraska ranch wife and mom who uses her voice to educate about the realities of agriculture.  Unfortunately, the public dialogue is full of misconceptions about the role and impact of agriculture on our environment and health.  Natalie is a wealth of knowledge about this complex topic, and she does a beautiful job of sharing all of the ways in which agriculture adds tremendous value to our lives.  I hope you learn as much from this conversation as I did.
In this episode, we cover:
- Why it is important to be educated about where your food comes from
- How agriculture is more diverse than you might think
- The truth behind the “grass-fed” label
- Why it’s actually a good thing that a large percentage of U.S. land is used for grazing animals
