About this Episode
N.C. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler has been in office for four terms now, and he sat down with the WholisticMatters Podcast Series to talk about challenges in North Carolina and across the country when it comes to agriculture.
Troxler first mentions the disappearance of farmland and his vision to give people an opportunity to participate in escalating real estate values. “Let’s keep the “farm” in “farming,” he says. Troxler also describes what sustainability looks like for farmers, leaning on agricultural research in North Carolina, and building successful hemp programs for agriculture in North Carolina.
“We’re an agricultural economy in transition right now,” Troxler said.
