        The Growing Farms Podcast is your weekly behind the scenes look at family farms from across the United States. The GFP follows my start in agriculture as I seek advice from farmers from all over the land. I share my expertise in farm marketing, small farm business, and farming as a career while operating a farm myself. The best way to learn how to farm is through other farmers. The guiding principle of the GFP is the documenting and free sharing of information. Whether you have been farming for years, you are a Homegrown Greenhorn, or you are starting to consider a career in agriculture, there is something we can all do to grow our farms.
        GFP089: How to Raise Pigs on Pasture - Wed, 06 Apr 2016 10:00:00

        Raising pigs has to be one of the most fun things that I do on farm. I truly enjoy almost every part of it. I mean, don't get me wrong, they could smell a little better every once in a while but who can turn their noses up at their floppy ears, curly tails, and curiously happy demeanor?

        I get my pigs for the season in less than a week. I'm raising 20 pigs this year for various different markets. It's a step up for me. A far cry from big production, but big enough to feed some serious people. I plan to market and sell through:

        • Whole and Half Hog
        • Pig Roast
        • Retail at Famers' Market and Farm Store
        • Restaurants for Beer and Spirits Dinners

        You can see how I raised pigs last year with this YouTube Playlist:

         

        Resources from this farm podcast:

        Farm Quote of the episode:

        "Never wrestle with a pig. You'll both get dirty but the pig will love it..."

         



        GFP088: My Background - Wed, 16 Mar 2016 09:00:00

        No matter what you've done before you got into farming, it applies. It all applies!!! Granted some of us are going to get into farming full time and run our own farms and others are going to be happy with a backyard garden. The important thing here is that we're all willing to get our hands dirty.

        I take a small amount of pride in that I've worked hard over the years to make my life interesting. It sounds a little egotistical perhaps, but I'm alright with that, because it's been fun.

        In past years I've biked across the country, worked with Howard Stern, put on plays, worked as a food photographer, web designer and programmer, and so many other odd things. Through it all I have finally learned one important lesson.

        That lesson: enjoy the process! Nothing is going to go according to plan and it is certainly not going to happen as quickly as you want it to. And that's OK. If you learn to love the day to day tomorrow will eventually come. Find something you love to do, pursue it, and enjoy "getting there".

        That was a major hurdle for me to overcome. I still get stressed. I still get down sometimes. But the majority of my time is spent appreciating what I have and wondering how I can make it even better. If I work to make it better, it usually happens, and guess what? It's even better!!! It all sounds so silly to put into words, and a few years I might have even made fun of the guy I've become. But on the other side of my freak out, I feel good, and I'm ready to get my season really moving.



        GFP087: Urban CSA and Apothecary - Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:52:04

        I have been in love with the idea of more farms appearing in urban settings. That is how we bring food to the masses and help wrangle that ugly beast called food security. Clever uses of otherwise untapped resources.

        On today's farm podcast episode we visit one of those urban farms to see how it all fits together.

        Items covered or mentioned on today's farm podcast:

        Farm Quote of the episode:

        GFP086: It's My Birthday - Wed, 03 Feb 2016 18:35:00

        I'm a day older than I was yesterday, but today I got to use a whole new number. I've made it to 31 and I'm pretty happy about it.

        In this podcast episode I talk about what my plans are for the farm this year and why they are that way. Then I go over what's happening on Farm Marketing Solutions and content for the year and I ask you for help.

        Ya see, I cannot do this without you. Talking into the abyss of the internet means nothing if there is no one to listen and interact. That's where you come in. I share some of my thoughts for how I think the podcast should go this year but I would much rather do something that you guys and gals are going to want to hear rather than just guessing and hoping to get it right.

        That's where the comments section of this post comes into play. Get on there and let me know what you think I should be doing this year for Farm Marketing Solutions. I'm trying to keep it simple so that I can do a little more than I've done in the past, but I don't want it to lose any value to you.

        And now, a fun YouTube video:

        Farm Update January and Audio Test - Tue, 19 Jan 2016 18:58:46

        I wouldn't say that 2016 has come in with a big! More like a pop, and a sizzle, a little shuffling, and then a nap. Scott and I have been working on getting the website back to 100% with only some luck. It is taking some time to undo several years of technical blunders in order to save everything and move on.

        The site did not get hacked, it is not unsafe. What happened is that we were getting mired in technical updates, code fixes, and general nerdy stuff. What we really want to do is produce content to share with you.

        With that in mind we have made the move to SquareSpace. In oder to get everything changed over and still maintain some online presence there are inevitable blips. Getting the podcast feed to update is one of those blips.

        Let's see if this works! If it does and you come to the new site let us know what you think. We know about the broken links, fixing that. More curious what you think about the design and direction.
