A current affairs and social issues podcast for and about the Municipality of Grey Highlands in Ontario, Canada.
A long road from St. Patrick’s Day in 2020. But here it is the tenth episode of In Grey Highlands and a homage to our farmers, the backbone of Ontario.
Stewart got to spend some time with Lorie Smith, Vice-President and Office Manager for http://greyagservices.ca/index.php/grey-agricultural-services/about-us (Grey Agricultural Services) in Markdale. Is there anything Grey Ag, the President and Exec Director Ray Robertson and their staff Patricia Ellingwood, Susan Bos, Keith Reid, and Joni Reid cannot do? We don’t think so.
Ron drops into the session with Lorie to talk with Dale Merrifield at his dairy farm near Eugenia, the conversation reveals some solid truths about the operation of a dairy herd.
Stewart in his President of the https://greyhighlandschamber.com/ (Chamber of Commerce) capacity does a mid-roll promotion for the first of the Chamber’s twelve highlighted member businesses: https://www.southgreynews.ca/ (The South Grey News).
Our contributing editor, Geoff Bowes (whose book https://openupthewall.com/ (Open Up The Wall) beat out all the competition in https://www.southgreynews.ca/grey-county-reads (Grey County Reads) program back in March 2020 – well done, Geoff!) has a chat with https://www.instagram.com/goldenlegacyvenue/ (Jessica Verner) of the https://www.thegoldenlegacy.ca/ (Golden Legacy) in Maxwell.
And Ron and Stewart discuss our local and regional current affairs climate in a time of COVID-19.
Guests include: Michele Harris from the Municipality of Grey Highlands; Darrell Markewitz from Wareham Forge talks Viking iron; and Amy Kitchen discusses farming in Grey.
Barry Penhale sits in for a busy Paul McQueen with Stewart Halliday and additional segments produced by Ron Barnett and Geoff Bowes.
