Hey everyone I am the creator of AskTheFarm. I mentioned a Medium post that gives the nuts and bolts behind this but will share a few points from it here! As a 5th generation farmer from IA I enjoy answering questions that consumers have about their food. From GMO's to water usage and everything else. I know it usually takes weeks to get answers from the supposedly "Ag Promoters" and thought why not just build something that people can directly as the ones growing the food? Couple reasons behind the donations is because I've always wanted to be able to help build up community garden programs and science backed school programs. This was a great way to finally be able to do it. Plus it also utilizes Bitcoin because it is powered by Stripe! Please ask any questions you might have about it or about agriculture in general. I should mention that this is averaging around 100 questions a week so far which have been awesome and enjoyable!

@_jacksmith Huge thanks to Jack for submitting this it is awesome for someone who I've come to know through this site and his startups as a true "grinder"!

Great idea Nate! I think it's super important for everyone to understand what goes into the production of our food, and to understand the value in it. What's been the best question you've been asked there so far?

@dan_e_gray thanks! It truly is the idea behind this, helping remove the wall between consumers and growers. Everyone deserves to have their questions answered or concerns heard when it comes to the food they eat! Also thanks for the suggestion of doing a medium founder story.
