Ginger Shields on our farms' most important product: future adult humans
When done thoughtfully, farms provide a great context for raising kids; especially when education is seen as life-long, and as wide as the world around us. Dave and Ginger rely on their children to run their successful farm business with them. And they rely on their farm to provide the context for learning about the world around them: how to work and learn, or at least to fan the flames of the curiosity we are all born with. Look for Episode 22 to see our discussion on farm marketing.

Cliff Davis spent much of his adult life, and became known across the region as a permaculture educator. But in this episode we talk about his new act: farming and breeding pigs, and selling food to his community in central Tennessee. This episode explores much of this transition, as well as going deep into Cliff's business, hog genetics, and the application of his principles to his livelihood on his particular piece of land.
