Best small Ag podcast out there.
Thank you for a great podcast. I have a deep background in both small scale and large production agriculture. The podcast host and the guests featured really have great working knowledge of the topics. Thanks again.
Love the podcast, but I wish there were more episodes.
These podcasts are great to listen to if you live in a rural area or have any interest in outdoor activities such as gardening, landscaping, etc.
