TV show host Anderson Cooper has partnered with the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance to help answer viewers’ questions about farming practices, organic food and genetically modified organisms. The farmers group announced the partnership this week.
Mike and Lynn Martz of Maple Park, Ill., kicked off the series airing on "Anderson Cooper Live" by hosting Christine, a mother of three from Long Island, N.Y. The couple grows corn, soybeans and wheat as well as raising cattle on their farm, which is more than 6,000 acres in size.
People interested in entering for a chance to appear on a future show can submit their questions by going to andersoncooper.com/page/usfra. They can also learn more about farming and food by going to fooddialogues.com.
An episode about food and farming that features viewers’ experiences airs Dec. 11.
