The show's reporters and producers tell stories in topics that include farm families, consumer issues, animal welfare and crop sustainability.

Some episodes also take the show abroad to countries such as Egypt and Taiwan, to show the impact American agriculture has on the global economy. This program airs on our main digital channel 9.1.
