Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #106 For today’s show, we are going down to the State of Arkansas to talk to Brandon Gordon of 5 Acre Farms. It’s a farming journey that started out with a single farmer who could put in crazy hours on the farm to make it work, but one that’s now changed to a husband and father farmer, who absolutely can’t put in crazy hours on the farm. As a result, Brandon is now focusing on crop selection, seasonality, and processes to make the hours he does spend on the farm pay, and pay well. One of the processes that Brandon has focuses on over the years to help save time and labor is no-till. He’s employed that strategy on his farm seeing great results both in terms of soil and reduced weed pressure. In this episode we’ll find out why he did it and how he did it, today it’s all about running a high-intensity vegetable operation in rural Arkansas with farmer Brandon Gordon.

Farmer Josh Sattin from Sattin Hill Farm joins me to talk about how he built up a farm following for his new farm pretty quickly - both online and in-person with local chefs.  He shares strategies for how he did that and how it has helped with sales.  He also gets into the various ways he is building soil on-farm from his no-till methods to using wood chip mulch in his pathways to utilizing chickens to prepare new growing areas.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #107 Sam's taken a perspective that he gained on hiking the Appalachian trail and he has used it to help navigate the equally hard journey into being a full-time vegetable farmer. Like the trail, Sam's career as a farmer has spanned a lot of land going from 1/8 of an acre in town to two fenced acres a few years later. Today Sam and I will talk about some of the challenges of growing crops on two acres, how Sam has to design his market streams to his land base, working with limited labor, and the trade-offs between growing niche crops and a wide variety of CSA crops. We'll also touch on some of Sam's big takeaways from his days on the trail and how that's helped him as a farmer.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! Featuring Brian Kowalski of Newfoundland. Living in Newfound weather is one challenge for Brian. He describes the climate as like farming in the shoulder season all summer, windy generally with occasional hurricane, cloudy. Despite the challenges Brian has made a go of it and is a profitable market gardener. What he is doing is working. Given that, the goal for this to take a look at how Brian is dealing with harsh conditions to help those of you who might not have such harsh conditions. Another use of this information is to take some of the techniques that Brian has to apply in the summer and apply them to the colder parts of your season, be in the spring or fall shoulder seasons, or the winters... Listen to the ideas and techniques that he is using and think about how you can apply them to your situation even if your season and his don't match up.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #105 Everyone enters the world of farming for different reasons. For my guest today, Travis Schulert, farming became a mode of a change in life. Travis has been able to navigate that road so far and is now in his 4th year of farming, but one which is also a new beginning as he starting his first season on a new plot of land currently dominated by grass. As you’ll hear in this episode, like all things in farming, Travis is taking it in stride and doing his best with it, and now realizing “farming is only romantic until you start doing the work.” Listen to past episodes at https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/ Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram:http://bit.ly/2B45VKQ

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! Engineer and permie Rob Avis from Verge Permaculture talks about building and designing passive solar greenhouses. Key Takeaways:   It is very important to have thermal mass in the greenhouse. Thermal mass absorbs the surplus heat during the date and radiates it back out at night. Know what your goals are for the greenhouse. Why are you building it? You can't over-vent a greenhouse. Thermal curtains can cut heat loss drastically through the glazing.   Listen to past episodes at https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/ Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram https://instagram.com/paperpot Follow Diego on Instagram https://instagram.com/diegofooter

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #13 It's June 9th and the farm is in full production. As you heard last week a big part of that production comes from greens. Greens that are being cut and cut and cut. That's resulting in a lot of product that is being sold to restaurants, distributors, and farmers market customers. This week we talk about delivering that product to restaurant customers and how that day looks from harvest to delivery. We also talk a lot about crop planning. How do you know what to plant now so you have it harvest later, and how do you know that you will have a market to sell that product to later.   Listen to past episodes at https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/ Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram:http://bit.ly/2B45VKQ

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #97   Today I'm talking to a grower who's admittedly "I'm a little bit obsessive about growing high quality produce." It's an obsession that's fueled his farm's growth, and an obsession which is a bit necessary to fuel the farm's growth to bring his fiancé onto the farm full-time. And while Elliot Seldner of Fair Share Farms' obsession may be on growing high quality produce, it's not only on growing high quality produce, because Elliot realized the importance of work-life balance and the need to have a time and place to enjoy the other things created on the farm. Today Elliot is going to talk specifically how they do that, in part by focusing intentionally on making the farm more efficient through appropriate technology, no-till, and optimizing equipment. Elliot's also going to talk about how he and his fiancé are approaching farm transition. Because she's currently employed a schoolteacher, a necessary step in their farm's evolution, but one that's only a step, where the long term goal is to get her onto the farm full time. Looking into the future, it's the farming methods that Emma and Elliot use which will make this all possible, a farm that provides multiple incomes on just over half an acre.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #104   When it comes to this world of farming small, what is this world? Is it a bunch of small farms each operating independently? For the most part, I think the answer is yes. Given that, what's the next step. Is it more small farms operating independently or are those small farms growing to be larger small farmers? Now I am not talking 1.5-acre farms scaling to 100 acres, I am talking about 1.5-acre farms scaling to 10 acres. If small farms do that, what does that look like, both for this world of farming small and for each independently operated farm? Is that scale manageable on a people-powered bio-intensive level? Or does this style of farming not scale? It's a question being asked by one of the leaders in this movement, JM Fortier. A few years ago JM Fortier left his 1.5-acre farm behind to start working on an experimental 10-acre farm to test the idea and validity of scaling these types of farming methods. It's a project which has produced some answers, but one which has also produced a lot of questions, some of which are the focus of our show today. It's all about the future of market gardening in this episode with farmer JM Fortier.   Follow Diego on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/diegofooter Listen to past episodes at https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/  Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram: http://bit.ly/2B45VK

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! FSFS #103 What’s the organic inspection process really like? It’s probably a big hassle, right? Let’s find out straight from the source, in this episode with independent organic inspector Laura Murray The last episode with Scott Murray covered the topic of why organic and what goes into getting certified. Today’s episode builds on that episode and we go a rung higher on the ladder taking on questions such as: Once the inspector shows up on your property the first time, how does that process unfold? What should you have in order when you have the inspector show up? Explain the annual inspection process? Would a property ever be inspected more than once a year? To answer these I am going straight to the source to talk to someone who deals with this every day. I’ll be talking with independent organic inspector Laura Murray. Laura does organic inspections of all over the country for organic certifiers. Her inspections span all types of farms and all types of organic product production facilities. She’s seen a lot over the years, and today she shares what the inspection process is really like both for the initial inspection and annual inspections. If you were thinking about getting certified by the inspection process made you a little uneasy, maybe that will change after you hear what it’s really like.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! Is ORGANIC CERTIFICATION worth it with organic pioneer and farmer Scott Murray (FSFS102) Organic certification. We all know what that is, seeing that green stamp on products in the grocery store and on signs at the farmers market. But, is it worth it? Is it only for large farms? I use organic methods, do I need the stamp? What goes into getting certified? Should I get certified organic? These are all common questions that I hear being asked with the small scale farming community. They are also questions that my guest today Scott Murray gets a lot, and helps a lot with. Scott’s a 40-year organic farming veteran who’s been around the organic farming movement since the beginning before it was a big thing. Today he will share his knowledge of what he’s learned about the organic movement and how he views organic certification in terms of who it’s right for when it makes sense to get, and what goes into getting it. If you were thinking about getting certified but had some reservations, this episode will address those common reservations and leave you with a clear idea of what’s involved in the process. And it just might not be as expensive or cumbersome as you think it is after all.   Listen to past episodes at https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/ Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram:http://bit.ly/2B45VKQ

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! S1W12 (FSFS12) It's June 2nd and the farm is in full production. As you heard last week a big part of that production comes from greens. Greens that are being cut and cut and cut. That's resulting in a lot of product that is being sold to restaurants, distributors, and farmers market customers. This week we get into sales, crop planning, planting density, and the ability to cut greens multiple times. It is week 12 of the urban farm season - June 2, 2015.

Today's episode is a BEST OF episode, which is a replay of a previously aired episode.  Enjoy! Today I am talking to someone who is killing it farming 1.5 acres. He is doing over $140k in sales on that 1.5 acres, supporting himself and his family in the process. Of that $140k 40% is profit. Compare that to corn and soybeans which net about $280 an acre. And he is grossing that $140k working 9 months a year and the average length work days. We aren't talking about burnout workload here. Think about that. $800 per acre versus $90000. I am happy to welcome Jean Martin Fortier, the author of The Market Gardener to the show. Jean Martin is a great example of someone who is out there maximizing efficiency and productivity on a small piece of land. His whole grow bigger, not better philosophy echoes this. Jean Martin focuses on growing biointensive and the use of appropriate technology to work with his permanent raised beds. And he designed the farm with the intent of keeping it manageable for the scale that he was at. He maximizes productivity and quality of life. For anyone that wants to get into farming, but is having trouble getting the numbers to work, this is the episode for you. This is a model that works. This is a paradigm shift.   Listen to past episodes at: https://www.paperpot.co/podcast Increase farm efficiency with the Paperpot Transplanter and Other Small Farm Equipment at https://www.paperpot.co/ Follow PaperpotCo on Instagram:http://bit.ly/2B45VKQ
