Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture’s second annual Young Farmers Conference is December 3-4. Fred Kirschenmann, Stone Barns Center’s Board President and Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, discusses his advocacy of a new "50 year Farm Bill" in Washington, and about his work helping to energize the burgeoning young farmers movement in the United States. He’s joined by Zach Wolfe and Emma Hoyt, two young farmers.
