    THE WINTER GROWERS PODCAST w/ Clara Coleman & Roots Farm

    THE WINTER GROWERS PODCAST w/ Clara Coleman & Roots Farm

    So excited to share the first episode of the latest season of The Winter Growers Podcast with y'all so it can be on your radar in the Summer as you prepare for... well... your Winter production. Clara has a great lineup ahead, growers from the South as well as the Northern US and Canada, even some international growers. Subscribe to Winter Growers wherever you're hearing this one. Here is. Clara Coleman.
    Kelli and Mike of Roots Farm, a certified-organic, diversified vegetable farm in Tiverton, RI, grow year-round on 1.5 acres using no-till, intensive farming methods and six moveable high-tunnels, each 30' x 48' in size. The use of moveable tunnels maximizes both time and space, utilizing three moves each year to optimize production, especially in the shoulder seasons. The biggest challenge of Winter growing for them is the management of humidity with row-covers in an unheated protected space. Although they've been farming full-time since 2014, they did not find financial stability until 2020, and now support their family and a crew of six.

Awesome!

I love this podcast! The host asks smart questions and has great, down to earth guests on with practical advice. I especially love hearing from other women farmers and their unique struggles and perspectives. I enjoy the philosophical explorations and the more specific how to’s. I hope in the future there can be some episodes and conversations with guests about land access and acquisition as that is one of the biggest obstacles for people wanting to get into this. Thanks for all you do!

TellUWat ,

Great!

As someone who is just getting into farming and hoping to have a small market no till farm this has been one of my biggest learning tools! Everyone is so informative and they make it fun at the same time. Thank you, thank you, thank you

Florescent Farm ,

Bam!

What a great podcast, I consistently learn little tips that greatly benefit my farming endeavors. As a novice market farmer, publications like this are another great tool to have in my tool box. Thanks so much for putting out great content!
