WhoopsyDaisy Farm ,

Love this podcast!

I have so enjoyed listening to this show as I go about establishing my own farm. Sheep dairying is still quite uncommon in America so hearing how others go about managing theirs has been so helpful. The hosts are engaging and fun. The farmers they interview are real people - not oversimplified idealists. Keep up the good work as you inspire many!!
