Meet the Host
A sixth-generation agriculturalist from Nevada, Missouri. Paxton's rural community is located at the intersection of Highway 54 and Interstate 49, and this area is where his story began. His family has lived there and been active in agriculture for nearly a century. He grew up listening to stories in his grandparents’ farmhouse, which happens to be the same home his great-great-grandfather built and it sits on the same piece of ground that he farmed with a horse and plow. His family roots run deep, and he's excited to bring his passion to you! Paxton is a junior at the University of Missouri, studying agricultural education and leadership. In his spare time, you can find him ringside at a pig show, spending time with family, or sitting at a Mexican restaurant with friends! Thanks for joining our conversation!
