Where Does My Food Come From: Mark & Jenny Rohrich

Thanks for joining us for another edition of ‘Where Does My Food Come From?’

The part blog/part podcast series where we meet, and get to know Farmers from all across the Nation.  We learn about the foods they grow, and the connection to the products we put on our tables.

We want you to get to know, and trust, your farmer.

where does my food come from
I’m so thrilled to introduce my guests to you today.  I’m talking with Mark & Jenny Rohrich, a husband and wife team who are not only producers, but are supporting the industry of agriculture in a big way.

In addition to playing a role on their family’s farm, they are also partners in an agronomy business, Maverick Ag, and Jenny is an avid agvocate on her blog, Prairie Californian.

This couple was a lot of fun to interview, and I think you’ll learn a lot about the human side of food production from them.

Push play below to hear from Mark & Jenny!

You can hear what a great team Mark & Jenny make, each of them bringing their own strengths to their farming operating with the other members of their family, as well as to their agronomy business and the Prairie Californian blog.  They’re able to ask questions of each other & really capitalize on the individual talents they each have.

And I love what Jenny said about the fact that farmers are listening to consumers conversations, and they want to be involved, and want to answer the questions that consumers have.  She said it best: “Farmers are just a tweet away”

As always, we so appreciate you reading, listening & following along.  We hope you enjoyed hearing from Mark and Jenny, and making a farm/food, producer/consumer connection with them.

If you know someone who would also like to know more about the food on their table, share this post & invite them to join you right back here next week for another #meetmyfarmer edition of ‘Where Does My Food Come From?’.


I’ll see you soon on The Farm!   -Shauna
