About Us

Harvest Public Media is a public media collaboration focused on issues of food, fuel and field. Based at KCUR in Kansas City, Harvest is comprised of an expanding network of reporters and partner stations throughout the Midwest.

CULTIVATING STORIES FROM THE GROUND UP

Global demand for food and fuel is rising, and competition for resources has widespread ramifications. We all eat, so we all have a stake in how our food is produced. Our goal is to provide in-depth and unbiased reporting on things like climate change, food safety, biofuel production, animal welfare, water quality and sustainability. See a list of the journalism awards we've won.

HOW WE REPORT

Most Harvest Public Media stories begin with radio — regular reports that air on our partner stations — and come with an online component. Harvest also explores issues through social media, television documentaries and video. We are committed to the highest journalistic standards. Click here to read our ethics policy.

FUNDING

Harvest Public Media is a Local Journalism Center launched in 2010 with the support of a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Today, the collaboration is supported by the Harvest Public Media partner stations, as well as by media outlets that pay for access to our work. We're also open to incorporating funding contributions from underwriters and individuals.
