Episode notes

Kyle Bridgeforth is a fifth-generation farmer at Bridgeforth Farms, a row crop operation headquartered in Tanner, Alabama. We sat down with him in the fifth week of coronavirus quarantine — and after a tumultuous few years of international trade wars — to ask him about the challenges facing his operation and the agricultural industry. He shares the history and evolution of his family’s business, his thoughts on the importance of international trade to the stability of US agriculture, and what makes him optimistic about farming in an uncertain future.
