“Our main objective with this tour is to offer genuine support and provide a platform for the often-underrepresented farming communities,” says Trent Loos, Co-Host of “Across the Pond” on BEK TV. “By facilitating dialogues on challenges and potential solutions, farmers can begin to regain control and chart a promising path forward in their endeavors.”
