Podcast: Will custom harvesting become extinct? Is gluten-free to blame?

In this episode of Keeping Ag Real, Jenny Schweigert connects with Tracy Zeorian, a custom wheat harvester and founder of HarvestHer. The show tackles USDA data, gluten-free diets and navigating through family dynamics in a 40 ft living space.
