About talk farm to me

I am the host of the bi-weekly TALK FARM TO ME podcast that features farmers, what they do, how they do it, the challenges they face and what resources they use to overcome them. I have an accidental farm and hope to connect non-farmers authentically to our farmers to demonstrate that they have more in common with farmers than they think. xo
