Great source of information.

Glad to have stumbled on this podcast. Would love to have a chance to talk with and tour with the host some day at our farm (Kubecka Farms). We are transitioning from a 400 acre whole sale produce farm to direct sales only at our farm-store. Many things are proving very challenging but this podcast is very useful.Thanks for the great ideas and ways to improve.
