21. Ginger Shields on our farms' most important product: future adult humans
39:37When done thoughtfully, farms can provide a great context for raising kids; especially when education is seen as life-long, and as wide as the real world around us. Dave and Ginger rely on their children to run their successful farm business with them. And they rely on their farm to provide the context for learning about the world around them: how to work and learn, or at least to fan the flames of the curiosity we are all born with. This episode is part one of two from a great interview I did with Ginger. Look for Episode 22 to see our discussion on farm marketing.

019 The Post-Permaculture Pig Farmer -Cliff Davis
1:40:12Cliff Davis spent much of his adult life, and became known across the region as a permaculture educator, helping people learn how to apply ecological literacy and system thinking to their footprint on the land. But in this episode we talk about his new act: farming and breeding pigs, and selling food to his community in central Tennessee.

016 Mid-Season Check up!
54:28I asked some of our past guests to share their answers to seven questions, so that we could hear some unique perspectives on how different farms and farmers across the country are faring during the wild year that is 2020. Joe Koopsen, Jordan Green, and Ben Grimes all shared their answers to the following questions: 1. What kind of changes came in March within each of your market streams? (Percentages or other way of describing it are fine) 2. When was the peak of pandemic buying for your farm business? Where are you now in relationship to the peak and the pre-pandemic status quo? 3. What strategies have you been using to hold onto your new customers? 4. What have you done to adapt in order to meet the demand in production, distribution and marketing? 5. What are your guesses for what the future might look like? 6. How are you, your family doing, adapting? 7. Anything else you want to add? Thanks again for everyone participating. Good luck out there with any and all future fluctuations!
