Program Title: Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show, episode 42
Description: Today on "Fit to Eat" we go to visit our cousins in Iceland, and spend time at the Agriculture University of Iceland, in lovely Hvanneyri. I speak with three staff members there,Ólöf Ósk Guðmundsdóttir, Egill Gunnarsson, and Rósa Björk Jónsdóttir, about the value of post-secondary education for farmers, even if they grew up on a farm, the changing role of farming in Icelandic culture (and why education helps to maintain the public's trust in agriculture)and the continuing attractions of the farming lifestyle for those looking for quality of life. Oh, and I get berated for my naively-optimistic view of the value of the Icelandic dairy cow. But it's all in good fun. Join us.
