Have you felt it? Something is rippling through humanity at this moment. It's a stirring... a longing... a remembering. A sense that we are more capable than we’ve been led to believe. We want to feel alive, not sedated.. but we've lost our way. We've traded a life intertwined with nature for asphalt and artificial lights. We've swapped natural movement for a sedentary existence. We've given up food from the earth in favor of food from the factory. We've sacrificed our traditional skillsets for apps and gadgets. But while our overdose on modernity may have made us sick, there is an antidote: modern homesteading. Join best-selling author and mentor, Jill Winger, each week as she digs into a different facet of the homesteading lifestyle. Each episode will bring you one step closer to a life where you feel more alive and intentional.

    S9 E6: Can You Grow Apples in the Arctic?

    S9 E6: Can You Grow Apples in the Arctic?

    Today I'm talking with Bob Osborne, columnist on CBC radio,  a Canadian farmer with more than 40 years of experience with all things apples, and the author of a brand new book, Hardy Apples.

    Bob and I chat about how to grow healthy apples (even in cold climates), talk about the Renaissance of apples, and discuss why there are thousands of different apples out there but only the standard five options available in the grocery store.

    And we may wind up gushing a little over all things apple crisp and apple cider.

    Find Bob's book here: Hardy Apples (https://bookshop.org/a/5789/9780228103189)

First episode brought me to tears

It’s as if you were describing me: raised in a city, going out of my way to go on ag related outings with 4H and FFA, skipping math class to castrate a calf or butcher a hog, obsessed with horses riding my bike miles away to exercise them or clean stalls for lessons, agreeing to date my first boyfriend because I liked his Angus bull didn’t hardly know the poor kids name just wanted to be on a ranch while other girls chose their men for their cars I was checking out their cattle haha! Always dreaming of self sufficiency, tangibility, never understanding the backwards priorities of society… I too, was made for such a time as this and hearing somebody I can so effortlessly relate to down to every detail literally brought me to tears! Sincerely your Crook County cousin a bit north!

fhhuyvd ,

Good info but..

I really like her information but why does it sound like she’s doing the podcast from her bathroom?? I just can’t listen long. She had better equipment years ago. I hope she continues to be brave and get better equipment!!

@nicolewithtodds ,

New Listener and I’m hooked!

“Don’t farm out your kids.” That’s the quote that told me I would enjoy this podcast. Thanks, Jill!
