Keynote Speaker - Wednesday

Millennial Farmer -
Zach Johnson

“Farmers Are Just Like Real People!” The Millennial Farmer - Zach Johnson   With his wit and dry sense of humor, Zach will share his story about why the channel was created...what he has learned... and how agriculture can communicate with non-farmers.

1:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 16

Known to his 800,000+ followers on YouTube as the “Millennial Farmer”, Zach is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm.  With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture.  Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike.  A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
