Dairies Coast to Coast
In honor of Dairy Month Marji joined two very different Dairy farmers on this week's episode of FarmHer Talks. From a sixth-generation Maryland cow dairy to a Washington microgoat dairy, she traveled coast to coast to get the details on two different sides of the industry. Meet the women of the Brooms Bloom Dairy in Maryland and then across the country to the infectiously positive Rachael of the Lost Peacock goat micro-dairy.
Where Art and Agriculture Meet: Des Moines Metro Opera
We hear the word "art" and don't take into consideration how broad it is. From the FarmHer beginnings of photography to the Des Moines Metro Opera, it is all art. And it shows us the world through a different lens. Just like in agriculture, you may not think you are a part of it but it enriches your everyday life. And the Des Moines Metro Opera is taking the agriculture world by storm with its world premiere of A Thousand Acres on July 9, 2022. Learn more about the event and how art tackles the tough issues in agriculture on this episode of FarmHer Talks.
Pollinators and the BIG Role They Play Everyday
At FarmHer, we LOVE pollinators that's why Marji decided to chat with Keri Carstens, an expert on the subject. She'll explain the status of pollinators in our country, how we got here, what role modern agriculture plays, and what the future holds, on this episode of FarmHer Talks.
There’s nothing like a FarmHer ❤️ 🐄
Listening to “The show must go on” broughtTears to my eyes. As a farm girl who grew up showing cows, I know first hand how special, memorable and important those years were. The women that stepped up to create an event where people could still show off their livestock and experience their version of the fair. It was awesome to hear. I love this podcast and how Marji is sharing the stories of FarmHers in agriculture. Farming It truly is becoming a lost “art.” Well done. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
I just love farmher it is the best tv show EVER and podcast 😀
