This week on the podcast we’re talking with Becky Wilber of Wilber Fertilizer Service in Cherokee, Oklahoma (pop. 1,630), where she helps run the family business and volunteers as an EMT and firefighter.

If you’re thinking about moving back to rural America, this episode is for you. This is a really important discussion where Becky shares openly and honestly about her decision to move back to her hometown and help run the family business, and why she says it was one of the hardest - but best - decisions of her life. We also touch on important topics in agriculture (everything from insecticides, organic, and GMOs to tariffs and China) and what it means to be a single female in rural America. 

 
If we don’t have people investing in rural America, if we don’t have people moving back, these little towns are not going to be here in 20 years. We’ve got to have people who are willing to invest what our parents and grandparents invested. And are times more challenging in rural America? I don’t know the true answer to that. I know times are challenging in farming America. But we still have to feed the world. 
— Becky Wilber
 

Becky talks about so many things that are legitimate concerns for a lot of our audience and if you’re contemplating a move to rural America, this will be a big help to you in your decision-making process.
