Minnesota farmers are sharing stories about everything from growing flax to raising yaks thanks to a radio series that recently marked its six-month anniversary on rural airwaves. The weekly radio program is the result of a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Minnesota Farmers Union, and Minnesota Farm Network.

Moynihan coordinates the Ag Opportunities on the Air program on behalf of the department.
