ZimmCast 654 – #FJFieldDays and DWFI Podcast


Hello and welcome to the ZimmCast.

This week I had the opportunity to fly for the first time in over 5 1/2 months to put the Golden ZimmComm Microphone to work at a farm event. Thank you Farm Journal for having me help with your Farm Journal Field Days event which included on-farm activities as well as a significant virtual experience. I attended the field day program in Iowa to take photos, conduct interviews and record speaker presentations. All of this is in a virtual ag newsroom on AgNewsWire. Before going to Iowa Cindy and I have been interviewing sponsors of the Farm Journal Field Days by phone and Zoom. We have a few more to conduct still.

Ben Riensche, Blue Diamond Farming CompanyIn this program I’m going to share an interview with the Iowa farm owner and field day host, Ben Riensche, Blue Diamond Farming Company. Ben was a very gracious host and his family and staff were all on hand working to make the experience enjoyable.

After my conversation with Ben I’m going to include the newest podcast we’re producing with the first episode that just published. It is the Daugherty Water for Food Podcast. In the first session, you’ll hear from award-winning chef, entrepreneur, and agriculture advocate, Louise Mabulo, as she discusses youth and sustainable solutions to food security. Mabulo promotes sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table cuisine and was recently awarded as a Young Champion of the Earth by United Nations Environment Programme.

Looking ahead I don’t know when I’ll need to get back on the agriblogging highway. That doesn’t mean the ZimmComm Team isn’t still working on various projects which include assisting companies and organizations with virtual events and content. Let us know if we can help you out too.

That’s the ZimmCast for this week. I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for listening.
