Influencers Experience Sustainable Farming During Best Food Facts Virtual Tour
Meet Zoe Kent – a young, future-focused Ohio corn and soybean farmer whose father turned over the reins of the family farm to her in late 2021. Armed with a degree in agri-business from The Ohio State University and a long-time passion for growing food, Zoe incorporates practices and technology to produce food more sustainably.
Three online influencers met Zoe to learn more about her approach in a virtual tour that showcased Zoe’s family and farm history, and ways she and a small team of employees (Dad included) grow crops with an eye toward protecting our environment.
And there were many aha moments along the way.
“Zoe ensures her farming practices are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. The biggest sustainability practice is that she uses no till and minimum till farming, which prevents erosion and reduces fuel use in the field. This is by far the most interesting and educational opportunity I’ve had through my food blog.” Jenny, Jenny’s Bites & Booze
“The virtual tour of Kent Family Farms truly opened up my eyes to how much goes into farming, the cost and dedication. Ohio is the 5th largest soybean producing state and soybean farming creates about 30,000 jobs in Ohio alone.” Kait, Kait’s Kravings
The Best Food Facts Virtual Farm Tour was sponsored by BestFoodFacts.org and Ohio Soybean Council.
