Do you know your farmer? What might it look like to connect with the person who grows or raises your food? What characterizes the communities that care about regenerative agriculture and nourishing, local food? Today we gain insight from a community in Little Rock, Arkansas of farmers and those who rally around them. Our guests are Clint Ballard of Milk and Honey Hill Farm, Greg and Kinsey Bradford of Bradford Valley Farm, Barbara Hutchinson, a farm hand at The Farm at Barefoot Bend, and David and Micah Rice, the owners of The Bramble Market.
We discuss a number of topics including: why local food matters, what got these farmers farming in the first place, the highs and lows of farm life, the benefits and challenges of producing raw milk and the satisfaction that comes from connecting with your community, and, yes, knowing your farmer.
