Welcome to Season 5 of ‘The Right Idea Podcast.’ The theme for this season is Agriculture in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is home to nearly 65,000 farms and leads the nation in total cheese production, goat milk production, cranberry production, and MORE! This is why it is so important for policymakers to remain in close touch with the agriculture industry in order to create sensible and sustainable agriculture policies.
In the second episode of Season 5, we feature an interview with Rachel Schroeder of Simply Crazy Farms in Watertown, Wisconsin. Rachel is a 4th generation dairy farmer and currently operates the farm alongside her father, James McManama. In today’s episode, Rachel dives into how the name ‘Simply Crazy Farms’ came to be, how to keep young people in farming, and she dives into the differences between organic and non-organic farms, defines GMO, and discusses everything behind what goes into food labeling!
