In the United States, agribusiness has become a big business with its own brand of food, but there are plenty of alternatives for the masses.
And, with the emergence of a new breed of agribu-sourced products that are less contaminated with toxins and pesticides, we’ve seen an unprecedented increase in consumer demand for more nutritious, organic, and sustainable foods.
The new wave of farmers, however, aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
They’re going to be on a mission to make the most of their resources, but not to give up the hard work.
“The farmers who have the best knowledge about agribum, the best genetic knowledge of agri-grapes, the most knowledge about the most efficient way to grow a crop, they’re going after the next billion farmers,” says Sarah Vlahos, who is an agribustication specialist at the University of Illinois.
“I’m not saying the farmers are the future of agriculture.
But I am saying there are a lot of opportunities.”

Many farmers are already learning the skills needed to grow food that’s better for the planet.
But, there’s a lot more to it than just how to use chemicals.
“They have to know what they’re doing,” she says.
“But, what they have to learn is how to farm.”
That’s what George Miller, an agrifood entrepreneur and member of the Farmington, Nebraska, farm, is trying to teach the farmers.
Miller says he’s been farming for more than 60 years, and has grown a family in Nebraska.
In fact, he’s the father of three.
But he says he has a unique set of skills that he believes can help farmers improve their crops.
“It’s the way we do things that makes us special,” he says.

“And, I mean, I would be working with dirt, and I wouldn’t be able to get the best results,” Miller says.
He says he was told that it took a lot longer to learn the techniques than he thought.
“We just didn’t have a lot to work with.”
Now, Miller is making sure that his family is getting the best grain possible, and that he’s learning from farmers around the world.
“If I didn’t, I don’t think we’d be able do what we’re doing right now,” he adds.
Miller started his first family farm in 1987 and has since grown several other farms.
The farm he shares with his wife, Sarah, has grown more than 20 varieties of grains, and produces some of the best tasting grain in the world, including a variety that’s grown for meat, cheese, and honey.
“A lot of times, we don’t grow a lot, so that’s why we’re seeing a lot,” Miller explains.
“Because the quality of the grain is always so high, we’re trying to grow it in the most sustainable way possible.”
When it comes to growing grains for human consumption, the main source of nutrients is soil.
But many farmers aren’t concerned with just growing grain for themselves, and they’re also experimenting with other crops that may not necessarily be good for the environment.
“You could go to a farmer’s market and get a really good product,” Vlahes says.
Miller, who grows soybeans for meat and beef, has a different approach.
His soybeans are grown on his family farm near Grand Junction, Colorado, which has a large soybean population.
“There’s a reason why we call it the first agri farm in the country,” he explains.
The family grows a variety of soybeans that are a little different from the standard ones, so they can be more easily grown in different climates.
Miller’s family also grows a type of cotton that has been bred to grow in the hottest climates.
He calls the cotton “the best cotton in the U.S. right now.”
Miller also is growing a variety he’s dubbed “organic cotton.”
It’s a cotton that is grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides, and doesn’t require pesticides or fertilizers.
“When you look at the crop, it’s like a hybrid, which means it has the ability to grow and be resistant to everything
