Bronson Teichert is a Junior at Utah State University doing a double major in agricultural science and broadcast journalism. He grew up on a cattle ranch in Cokeville, Wyoming and has always loved agriculture. While serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in a small farming town on the island of Sicily, the idea came to him that everyday people need to know more about where their food comes from. His wife, Elise, who is studying to be a social studies teacher, has helped him achieve his goals thus far. Bronson says he wouldn’t be where he is today without her. His ultimate goal is to one day return to Cokeville and continue ranching with his family and do freelance work from home.
