Meet John Piotti, the president and CEO of American Farmland Trust (AFT) and host of No Farms No Future, a new podcast from AFT and HRN. In this episode, which originally aired on HRN's Let's Talk About Food, we learn how a kid growing up on Nantucket Island, hoping to design sailboats, ended up in Maine and became laser focused on preserving rural life and the livelihood of America’s farmers.
For more than 40 years, American Farmland Trust (AFT) has fought to protect farmland, promote sound farming practices, and keep farmers on their land. At a time when farmers and ranchers face ever-increasing financial and climate challenges, AFT works nationwide with them to help create innovative solutions for a sustainable food system.
No Farms No Future is a new podcast created through a collaboration between Heritage Radio Network, American Farmland Trust, and The Food Voice.
