On behalf of the Department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics (FARE) I would like to welcome you to our undergraduate homepage and thank you for your interest in our undergraduate studies. My name is John Cranfield. I joined the department in 2001, and have been department chair since Fall 2014. I am currently serving as undergraduate coordinator for the academic year 2016/2017. I teach agricultural marketing and agricultural policy. I am also an alumnus from the department, earning my undergraduate and a graduate degree in agricultural economics.
