About

CommonGround


At CommonGround, we are a group of farmers having conversations about the food we grow and how we produce it. We share our personal experiences, as well as science and research, to help consumers like you sort through the myths and misinformation surrounding food and farming.

CommonGround was developed by farmers through two of our national checkoffs, the United Soybean Board (USB) and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA). We welcome you to join the conversation – and to enjoy your food without fear.
