Fiberton Acres' Podcast looks at the funny side of horticulture and animal husbandry. We look at the history of the field, and mix in our crazy experiences in raising our fiber animals, farming and more!
Episode 28 - Everything Comes back to chickens(AKA - Chicken Part 2)
As we continue to talk chickens, we realize that everything comes back to chickens, including our 10 minute foray into a cult in southern Cali led by a 90's heart throb. You know...just the norm.
So come have a little listen about the genetics of the modern day chickens and how they gained popularity through history.
Episode 27 - Modern Dinosaurs Part 1 (AKA Chickens in History)
In this episode we begin a series on what many call the gateway drug to farming/homesteading...the chicken! These modern dinos have quite the history, and in this first part we discuss where they come from and their religious significance through time.
Episode 26 - I've got some applesauce for that headache. (AKA Pt 2 of Preserving)
Our second installment of the continuing drama that is food preservation and out eternal fight against microbes. RIP Louis Pasteur - 1822 to 1895.
But seriously, we jump in to canning this episode. Fun fact (spoilers) Napoleon funded it.
Episode 25 - 2017...A Year in the Rear View - with special guest!
2017 was a crazy year for Fiberton...we moved 5 sheep, 4 rabbits, 2 cats, a dog and 2 humans across the country to re-establish farm life in our old home of San Miguel, California. We had some happy times, and some some sad, too. We share these in this episode along with our special guest from Rio Salinas Ranch, Miranda! Then we talk about some goals for the new year, and encourage all our listeners to do the same!
Episode 24 - Crispy or Brittle? (AKA - Part 1 of Preserving Foods)
This week we begin our mostly coherent ramblings on food preservation! We start off old school with some of the earliest methods, while Ashley discovers that one of her food preserving books from the 1970's is published by an oil company. (That's a thing I guess?!) Check out this first part of our food preservation series and help us answer the age old question... crispy or brittle?

You can take hipsters out of the city...
These guys have a most interesting life and it comes through in their hilarious antics detailed in this podcast. Lots of banter and even more wild tangents. If you are into learning how to make your own llama yarn coat or shaving rabbits or weekly tidbits on fencing you have found your home. Cheer to Ric and Ashley!
