On Wednesday, November 12, 2015, USFRA brought the voices of farmers and ranchers to the New York Times Food for Tomorrow conference as we hosted a breakfast and panel discussion, “Big Ag, Big Food: How Being Good for the Environment Is Not about Size” at the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. Learn more about the event here.

USFRA’s goal was to increase consumer confidence in modern agriculture and Food for Tomorrow was the perfect venue to have a thoughtful discussion about food and production issues.

We were extremely excited to have the opportunity to add the perspectives of farmers and ranchers on our panel to this important gathering of food minds. During the discussion, panelists had the opportunity to share their point of view on the role sustainability plays in today’s production practices. 

Our organization was created to give the trusted voice of modern agriculturalists the opportunity to lead the discussion about how food is grown and raised in this country. The panelists shared their unique farmer and rancher perspectives on issues affecting today’s food systems with the Food for Tomorrow attendees.

Randy Krotz is the chief executive officer of USFRA
