Thanks for joining us—

Our travels take us to all kinds of farms and ranches here in Idaho…I thought I had seen it all 

Until I got wind of a worm farm. My first thoughts centered on a farm out in the country…and then I heard it was downtown, in a basement. I had to see it…

In our Boise office, the Governmental Affairs crew is still in the thick of the Legislative session. They’ve been at it since late December and the days are long and hard and often the issues resurface over and over again, and that's how it's been with the hemp issue. This year the legislation was up again, I've seen it surface many times, perhaps the first time back in the early ’90s…

And like we said before, not quite a reality until Gov. Little signs it… let's hope our farmers have a new side crop next year.

That's it from the Idaho Statehouse, for the Farm Bureau, I'm Jake Putnam.
