About

Welcome to Big Picture Agriculture!
This site covers U.S. and global trends and developments in agriculture, food, and farming. There is a strong emphasis on Midwestern agriculture, sustainability and conservation, farming methods, and the evolving science, rural demographics, health, diet, and economic realities of food production and land use.

Writing: Since I began in 2009, my Ag-related writing has appeared in the NYT's, CNN.com, Yale E360, Business Insider, Daily Camera, Naked Capitalism, and Seeking Alpha and has been referenced by the Washington-Post Wonkblog, Financial Times Alphaville, Forbes.com, Atlantic.com, Grist, VOX, and Mother Jones. I have been interviewed by Boerderij (leading agricultural magazine in the Netherlands) and AlJazeera Live Europe.

Background: I grew up on a farm in the Midwest which practiced rotational grazing. I am a trained health professional, an artist, and an avid gardener.

Funding: For the curious, this site is not funded by anyone and the only revenue I receive is from Google Ads.
