    In this episode, we sat down with Kris Gosney of John's Farm.  Kris shares how her family's centennial farm has experienced virtually every wave of agriculture—from traditional farming in the late 1800s to conventional, chemical farming through the late 1900s, and today as an organic regenerative farm raising grass-fed beef and organic wheat.
