Unboxing the Future, Getting Beyond the Labels

While a lot is changing with food systems and agriculture, what hasn’t changed is the labeling and pigeonholing of farm practices, says Michelle Miller. Although organic markets are booming, consumers are also becoming more skeptical, and some farmers have difficulty fitting in with the regenerative crowd — all of which is watering down the work farmers are doing. Miller, the writer, columnist and online influencer in agriculture known as the “Farm Babe” will describe how any farmer can take part in exciting new markets being created and diversify their operation without getting bogged down in labeling and buzz words. She’ll also talk about the conservation work no-tillers are doing and why it is still important to consumers and to their profitability and future.
