On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
If you’ve ever dreamed of living on a farm, you’re not alone. But what does it take to move beyond your dream and make it a reality? Two Washingtonians with wildly different paths to farming have written a new handbook for the modern agricultural generation, combining their own stories with everything from a guide to land acquisition to an outline of soil biology. Miraculously, the book is under 300 pages.
Kojo speaks with co-authors Forrest Pritchard and Ellen Polishuk about what it took to start their farms, and what advice they have about Washingtonians who wish to join their ranks.
