Surviving Hard Times

Aug 1, 2023

In this episode, we sit down with Tara Vander Dussen and Natalie Kovarik, the two co-hosts of Discover Ag the docuseries, and Discover Ag the podcast. With over 10 years of history sharing online and building a community around agriculture, both Tara and Natalie are on a mission to bring a unique perspective to the food and farming space.

Natalie is a fourth-generation rancher who lives in central Nebraska. Here, she and her husband run Kovarik Cattle Company, a cow/calf operation with a growing herd. In addition to this, they also have been cultivating other diverse agricultural ventures.
