This week on The Farm Report host Erin Fairbanks talks with Ashley Bechman, a writer for the publication AgriNews of Illinois. They discuss how she is using her education in both communication and agriculture to cover topics that affect local farm families and their businesses. Tune in to learn about the importance of 4H and FFA as well as why sweet potatoes are actually completely different from yams and more nutritious for you than white potatoes. This episode is sponsored by Fairway Market.

“A sweet potato is a very versatile crop . . . it’s nutritious, healthy, and delicious.”
