Swain Family ,

Thank you WR!

Thank you so much for this podcast. We are a young family who left the city, we are millennials that made the change to raise our own children on our small farm. We feel so validated in our journey of being first-timers, and your podcasts give us confidence every time we listen to keep going. You show us that although young we are strong, and we can do this. I love that your guests are honest, I love that we hear the good and bad. Your podcast gives such a wide area of topics, and authentic guests that I feel like I have new friends every time I listen. We can do THIS, and we can grow agriculture together!
