    Blooms During the Coldest and Darkest Months of the Year with Emily of Von Trapp Flowers & Emily of Little Farmhouse Flowers

    Blooms During the Coldest and Darkest Months of the Year with Emily of Von Trapp Flowers & Emily of Little Farmhouse Flowers

    Today, I have TWO guests, Emily Von-Trapp of Von Trapp Flowers in VT and Linda D’arco of Little Farmhouse Flowers in NY. Emily and Linda each operate their own cut flower businesses with a focus on wholesale and winter flower bulb forcing AND they collaborate to teach flower farmers how to bring beautiful flowers to bloom during the coldest and darkest months of the year through The Tulip Workshop online course and on-farm classes. Along with a second Lilly workshop, their collaboration has inspired hundreds of flower farmers to grow local blooms during the dark winter months. We talk about their backgrounds, how they met, along with an uncanny list of similarities they share and some of the specifics of their farms in terms of growing infrastructure and systems. Lots of great information shared in this episode by two wonderful women with a passion for local winter blooms and friendship.

    Building a Year-Round, Family-Focused Farm in the South with Ray Tyler of Rose Creek Farms

    Building a Year-Round, Family-Focused Farm in the South with Ray Tyler of Rose Creek Farms

    Over the last 14 years, Ray Tyler of Rose Creek Farms has been passionate about developing growing systems to successfully grow and sell certified organic produce fifty-two weeks a year in western Tennessee. Along with his wife Ashley and six homeschooled children, he is committed to creating a family-focused farm that allows for a sustainable and healthy work-life balance. Using a meticulous system of eighteen caterpillar tunnels on one acre, Ray is able to supply three farmers markets and a farm stand. His market displays are called "the salad bar" and they are always stacked high with bunches of carrots, radish, celery, lettuce heads, and a varied assortment of greens. The early years, however, were a challenge for Ray, and we speak about how he and his family persevered with a lot of trial and error to become the successful farm and business they have today. Ray is an inspiring example of a passionate farmer who is committed to the health and well-being of his family, his business, the community, and the land.

    Demystifying Soil Testing & Analysis with Bruce Hoskins of The University of Maine Soil Testing Lab

    Demystifying Soil Testing & Analysis with Bruce Hoskins of The University of Maine Soil Testing Lab

    Soil Testing. Over the years, Natalie has gotten a lot of this kind of question: why are my results from THIS lab different from my results from THAT lab? And WHY are the recommendations DIFFERENT? For this episode, she spoke with Bruce Hoskins who runs the Soil and Plant Anaylitcal Lab at The University of Maine. It's impossible to cover everything you want or need to know about soil testing in an hour, but they lay the groundwork for what exactly happens to a soil sample when you send it into a lab for basic nutrient analysis.

Must listen if you are interested in farming

Farmer Jesse finds the best people to interview and then let’s them talk. So refreshing! Excellent information and a ton of food for thought while you are seeding and weeding

Nature's Apprentice Farm ,

Best market gardening podcast!

I have been learning a ton from this podcast, let alone how entertaining it is. I can’t get over how respectful and humble Jesse is conducting the interviews. You will not hear him interrupting people to show off despite being super knowledgeable and having lots of experience. Jesse is inquisitive and hilarious, and approaches every interview with curiosity and an implacable desire to learn. Thank you so much for all you and your collaborators do!

Stone Meadow Gardens ,

Our favorite farming podcast!

This is the best farming podcast out there right now. Jesse does a great job interviewing his guests and always has thoughtful relevant questions that shows he knows his stuff and is attentive to what his guests are saying. He also has an interesting and diverse group of farmers who are dedicated to the work of ecological farming. Thanks Jesse!
