    Episode 114: The State of the American Food System with Austin Frerick

    Episode 114: The State of the American Food System with Austin Frerick

    Austin Frerick is an expert on agricultural and antitrust policy. He is a 7th-generation Iowan whose passion for agriculture comes from the weekends working on his grandpa's farm. He is a Fellow at the Thurman Arnold Project at Yale University. In 2022, he worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to organize a conference at Yale Law School entitled “Reforming America’s Food Retail Markets,” which explored competition issues in the nation’s grocery industry. He is the author of Barons: Money, Power and the Corruption of America’s Food Industry, which illustrates the concentration of power in the American food system.
    In this episode, Austin and John discuss:
    The monopolistic practices in the food supply chain
    The influence of politicians on food producers
    Breaking up monopolies vs removing regulatory barriers
    Foreign ownership of food companies and its impact on American agriculture

    Episode 111: Questioning Farm Management Traditions with Boe Clausen

    Episode 111: Questioning Farm Management Traditions with Boe Clausen

    Boe Clausen is a second-generation farmer in Eastern Washington. His parents immigrated from Denmark and established Stokrose Farm in 1981. Initially focused on vegetable seed production, the farm diversified into alfalfa, hay, corn, wheat, and cattle. Boe now manages Stokrose Farm alongside his siblings. 
    Boe's shift towards foliar applications, reduced nitrogen usage, and strategic nutrient management have improved crop health, reduced disease and insect pressure, and enhanced soil fertility. In 2022, he grew 250-bushel corn with only 20 lbs of nitrogen.
    In this episode, Boe and John discuss:
    The role of technology in modern farming practices
    Using molybdenum, sulfur, and nitrogen foliar applications
    How cover crops and crop rotations can build soil health
    The impact of incorporating a feedlot into his operation
    Using sap analysis to guide nutrition applications

    Episode 110: Stock Cropping and Regenerative Innovation with Zack Smith

    Episode 110: Stock Cropping and Regenerative Innovation with Zack Smith

    Zack Smith is a fifth-generation farmer from northern Iowa. He is the owner and operator of Smith Seed and Agronomy, LLC, and co-founder and CEO of Stock Cropper, Inc.

    Zack previously worked in seed production and chemical retail as a certified crop advisor and then as a seed rep while farming on the side. He eventually became interested in soil health and started experimenting with strip-tilling and using cover crops, which marked the beginning of his shift towards regenerative agricultural. Zack recently developed a system called “stock cropping,” a regenerative farming system that raises row crops in conjunction with multiple species of livestock simultaneously in the field. He and his business partners, Sheldon Stevermer and Lance Peterson, went on to develop the Cluster Cluck 5000, an autonomous, self-moving barn.
    In this episode, Zack and John discuss:
    The concept of stock cropping and its benefits to plant and soil health
    Developing barns for mobile grazing that integrate multiple species of livestock
    Implementing a rotational grazing system with frequent moves to optimize animal impact and pasture utilization
    Developing high-quality pasture mixes using cool-season and warm-season species
    The importance of innovation and collaboration in advancing regenerative agriculture practices

    Episode 109: From Urban Organizers to Organic Pioneers with Julie Rawson and Jack Kittredge

    Episode 109: From Urban Organizers to Organic Pioneers with Julie Rawson and Jack Kittredge

    Julie Rawson and Jack Kittredge are co-owners of Many Hands Organic Farm, an organic CSA farm that serves 150 families in Barre, MA. They met while doing community organizing work in Boston, and in 1982, made the decision to move out to the country to raise their kids in connection to the land and grow their own food. Julie and Jack share their farm’s transformative journey from inception to becoming a model of regenerative, organic farming.

    Their journey from community organizing to farming and urban to rural living
    The financial and physical challenges of starting a farm
    The importance of soil remineralization, foliar feeding, and no-till practices
    Their careers with the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA)
    The release of their new book, “Many Hands Make a Farm”
    Fostering community and the broader impact of their work

MecoFarmer ,

In-depth, practical and science-based.

Indepth interviews with researchers and farmers, opening up complex plant biology concepts to the less initiated practitioner. John is meticulous with his questions, thus helping the listener to understand new concepts as they fit into the bigger picture of better farming practices. Love the guest lineup! Leaders in their field. Wealth of knowledge packed in these interviews and thoroughly written synopses and references are provided for each interview.
