In this episode, Margo Hale, NCAT's Southeast Regional Director, visits with U.S. Senator John Boozman of Arkansas. Margo has known the senator since she was a child and has worked with Sen. Boozman's office on agriculture issues since he entered Congress.

In their conversation, Senator Boozman shares his connection to agriculture, and they talk about the diversity of Arkansas agriculture.

They also discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on the food supply and farmers, opportunities for small farmers in local food systems, the economic situation for farms, and looking ahead to the next Farm Bill.
