Insight On Business the News Hour

Talking ”Bet the Farm” with Author/Farmer Beth Hoffman

September 23, 2021

While at the Okoboji Writers Retreat in September I met Beth Hoffman a woman with an interesting history. Think Queens, Long Island, Jersey, Berkley, California the University of California, San Francisco a stint reporting for NPR...and now a farmer on a beef ranch in Iowa. She's just published a book "Bet the Farm: The Dollars and Sense of Growing Food in America". We sat down to talk about her journey and her life now as the wife of a chef/butcher and 5th generation farmer John Hogeland near the tiny town of Lovilia (pop. 583). Here is her story.
