WHAT IS AGRICULTURE’S HONEST TAKE?
This free newsletter focuses on the most obscure data, trends, technologies, and structures that food and agriculture have to offer!
Food and agriculture is a fragmented industry filled with nuance and complexity. Readers deserve diligent effort that digs into the specificities that enable agrifood to be at the base of Masclo’s hierarchy of needs. At Agriculture’s Honest Take, we exploit those distinctions in a clear and digestible format in a writing style that inflects the orderliness of a Byrne Hobart with the lightheartedness of an Adam Tooze…
Aside from industry knowledge, this newsletter promotes the following values:
The authenticity that readers can always trust and be assured they're receiving my raw perspectives
A uniqueness that veers away from the herd and offers a novel viewpoint likely not heard anywhere else
First principles thinking for subject matter construction and articulation of complex topics
Humility to put one's ideas and opinions out there for scrutinty, conjecture, and debate
Expect a monthly deep-dive edition of a specific topic, supplemented with Agriculture’s Honest “Take 5” weekly roundup featuring five important pieces of curated content.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Lee Vetsch. After receiving my MS in Agribusiness and Applied Economics from North Dakota State University, I joined a venture capital firm investing in agricultural technology. There, I focus efforts on crop inputs, diagnostics, robotics, and controlled environment agriculture.
I grew up on a farm and ranch in North Dakota where I remain involved today growing corn, soybeans, wheat, forage, and registered Black Angus cattle. In addition to outdoor row crop agriculture, I co-founded a vertical farming startup in 2022 that supplies leafy greens to local, decentralized markets in the Midwest.
I love meeting new people and hearing different perspectives. Please reach out to connect!
