Food Bullying Podcast

A farm kid’s perspective: Episode 48


Life on the farm may be a mystery for those of us in urban and suburban areas. One of the best ways to understand where food comes from is to meet the people who grow it.  Farm kids balance school, sports, service clubs, and helping on the farm.  In this behind the scenes episode, meet our Food Bullying Podcast editor and find out about her life as a farm kid. She shares what she’s learned showing dairy cattle in 4-H, including how stubbornness and leverage can move a ton.

Dairy farm kidAudrey will soon be a junior in high school and loves her Holsteins. She is an avid runner, competing in cross country and track. Audrey is a busy, high-achieving student who is also active in 4H and FFA – and wishes people understood that not all farmers fit a mold.

She also describes a very successful FFA effort to solve two problems in her community.  Through a milk and meat campaign that raised more than $34,000, her FFA chapter purchased meat and milk from local farmers to be distributed to seven local food banks during the pandemic and following months.

Listen in for an inside look from a teenager on the farm.
