South Dakota Farmers Union (SDFU) premieres Our Way of Life podcast on their website June 2024.

“Our Way of Life is another way to share the stories of South Dakota’s farm and ranch families,” explained Karla Hofhenke, SDFU Executive Director. “The podcast features the South Dakotans who do the work of our state’s largest industry. Listeners will hear from family farmers and ranchers as well as agriculture industry, business and thought leaders. It will focus on folks of all ages involved in agriculture. Through this podcast, we hope to share who we are, what we do and what we care about.”

SDFU currently publishes a print and digital newsletter and hosts a monthly radio show. Hofhenke sees the podcast as yet another platform to connect South Dakotans with agriculture whether they are involved in the industry or not.

“Sharing the story of South Dakota Agriculture and the people involved is so important,” Hofhenke said. “Agriculture is the foundation upon which our state is built. But it is more than an economic driver, for family farmers and ranchers and many who work in other aspects of the industry, agriculture is also a way of life.”

An idea that has been in the works for a few years, Shelby Landmark, the organization’s Communications Specialist made the podcast a reality. Landmark hosts the podcast. New segments will post to www.sdfu.org at 10 a.m. the first and third Monday of each month and are available at no cost to all. Our Way of Life podcast is also available on Spotify, iHeart Radio and Amazon Music.
