INTRODUCING CONNER GRANT!
One of the greatest things about interview FFA students is hearing the “unbridled” enthusiasm that the students have for their projects, farming and agriculture. In today’s interview I am interviewing an student who is the third generation of farmer on his families farm.
Conner Grant’s grandfather started their farm from scratch in the 1970’s. Today this farming legacy has been built large enough that Conner hopes to return to it when he done with college and make this his full time career.
In this episode we find out that the land that Conner is farming for himself, he is leasing from his grandparents. I asked Conner the same question I ask any student who is leasing land from family, and I get the same answer. It is amazing to me just how much wisdom there is in farm families across the board in the U.S.
A funny surprise in this episode is just how good a voice that Conner has. I joke with him about becoming an agricultural broadcaster. I think after you listen, you will agree.
Enjoy this interview with Conner Grant.
