Talking AgTech with My Favorite Aussie Meg Kummerow


Discussing AgTech and how out of touch with reality Food Tank speakers seem to be...

Today's guest brews her coffee as Jenny is working on making supper. What began as acquaintances on Twitter has grown to a friendship like no other connected by Skype.

Meg Kummerow shares her expertise in AgTech, as we discuss her background growing up with cattle. While explaining the cattle ranch, Meg has to give Jenny a lesson on the word mustard.

The discussion travels through a recent tweet derived from Food Tank's latest event. Initiated by a speaker, the tweet states technology in food and agriculture is the last frontier.

Listen in to catch their opinions on the tweet as well as setting goals for 2018.
