Wanted: Regenerative Ag Leaders Seeking To Make A Difference In 2022

October 4, 2021

Are you looking for opportunities to make a difference in regenerative food and agriculture? Farm Journal’s Trust In Food™ team is growing rapidly, and we’re seeking talented regenerative ag professionals committed to producer-led acceleration of regenerative farming and ranching.

That might sound like a pretty broad brush of an ask, and that’s because it is. If you’ve followed our work here at Trust In Food™ for any length of time, you know our program of work spans row crops, beef, dairy, pork and specialty crops. For example, we:

  • Gather custom data intelligence and lead research and outreach in partnership with ag retailers and other trusted advisers to inform the delivery of sustainable agriculture.
  • Convene conversations of leaders spanning the agri-food value chain for graduate-level dialogue on where the industry is headed next—and how we can both give credit where it’s due while breaking down barriers to regenerative ag adoption.
  • Organized impact initiatives such as America’s Conservation Ag Movement and Trust In Beef™ that develop content, programming, resources and networks of peer learning communities centered on a guiding question: What do farmers and ranchers need to be successful in their businesses and natural resource stewardship, now and for future generations?

Our work emphasizes the importance of the human dimension of change-making in food and agriculture. We believe hearts and minds are leading indicators of change on the ground. The more we support farmers and ranchers by helping increase understanding, valuation and the feeling of being capable of taking the next step on a journey of regenerative agriculture, the more likely we are to see uptake in acres under a specific practice, product or sustainable solution.

Here’s the ask: If this type of work appeals to you, we’d love to visit and explore how we can plug you into the work of Trust In Food™. We are seeking trustworthy, passionate and hardworking regenerative ag leaders of all backgrounds who are available for programmatic assignments ranging from 1 month to 6 months and beyond as well as full-time positions including our most recent postings: Climate-Smart Ag Interactive Programming Manager and Sustainability Analyst. We anticipate future growth, so if these roles don’t match your current experience, please keep an eye on Farm Journal job postings or our Trust In Food LinkedIn page for additional opportunities in the coming months!

If this is of interest, I hope you’ll get in touch. You can email me at nbirt@farmjournal.com or contact me via direct message on LinkedIn.

I look forward to hearing from you and to working together to help the American farmer and rancher realize the full potential of a regenerative food future.
