Conversations about how food is grown and raised are happening. But, over the years, the voices of farmers and ranchers have been less than adequately represented in the conversation about food production. Engaging in a conversation about food production – rather than defending food production – helps farmers and ranchers understand what consumers want, and helps consumers learn more about how food is produced from the people who actually grow and raise it. 

By listening to their questions, engaging in conversation and talking about how we continually improve what we do on our farms and ranches, we learn from each other’s Opinion. In the end, we all have a vested interest in food. USFRA offers specialized training sessions – called Conversation with E.A.S.E. trainings – designed to help those who produce food lead productive conversations with those who may have questions and concerns about food production.
