Community Spotlight: Oral Food History Pt. 3

Nov 25, 2019

In honor of the Thanksgiving season, join us for a limited Community Spotlight series on Oral Food History Projects, produced by students from the University of Arkansas' Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness.

Today Pete talks with student Taylor Riley about an interview with her grandfather, Gary, a native Arkansas cattle and poultry farmer.  Gary reflects on how farming has evolved over the past half-century, specifically how much larger farming operations are now than they used to be, and how farming is no longer a survival tactic. 

Stay tuned for more installations of the Oral Food History series.
