Farm Foundation Forums are discussion opportunities for thought leaders to examine timely issues. After more than 10 years of originating the Forum in Washington, D.C., Farm Foundation is taking this Forum on the road. The location will be new but the discussion will continue the Forum’s tradition of examining diverse perspectives on timely issues.
