Welcome to my site, Big Picture Agriculture!

Background: I've been an online writer and researcher of food, agriculture, and sustainability subjects since 2009. I grew up on a traditional family farm in the Midwest that practiced rotational grazing, my professional degrees are in science and healthcare, and, I am also a gardener and an artist (Website).

My writing has appeared in the NYT's,, Yale E360, Business Insider, Daily Camera, Naked Capitalism, and Seeking Alpha and has been referenced by the Washington-Post Wonkblog, Financial Times Alphaville,,, Grist, VOX, and Mother Jones. I have been interviewed by Boerderij (leading agricultural magazine in the Netherlands) and AlJazeera Live Europe.

Funding: For the curious, this site is not funded by anyone and the only revenue I receive is from Google Ads.

Valuable News Resource: If you are interested in obtaining high quality Ag-related news each day, I invite you to use the rich resource of news feeds found at the bottom of this site. I doubt that you'll find anything like it anywhere else on the web.
