    From Tech to Regenerative Agriculture with Sarah Riedner

    On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Sarah Riedner.
    For full show notes, including links mentioned in the show, head over to wildrosefarmer.com/166
    Sarah Riedner still considers herself a newbie farmer. She and her husband are both first-generation farmers and started officially farming in 2017, although they had been doing urban farming in the backyards of Calgary prior to that. Her farm, Happiness By The Acre, is located just outside of Didsbury, AB on 153 acres of prairie grazing land and riparian areas.
    Sarah primarily considers herself the "crazy chicken lady", although she has also earned titles of "cow whisperer" over the years. Her farm has a mix of livestock including, pastured laying hens, heritage breed Kunekune pigs, grass-fed steers, and free range ducks. During the summer months, the farm also hosts a herd of cattle from their friend's cow-calf operation.

Best Company for Chores

This podcast is my go-to for chore time. I manage our small farm/homestead by myself and it can be easy to feel worn down or pessimistic. Listening to this podcast puts strength in my step as I tend our animals and land. Stories of Motherhood, agriculture, entrepreneurship, and more, make the content well rounded and inspiring. Keep it up gals. We’re all in this together.

So informative!

While I don’t live in a rural area nor do I farm or homestead myself, I recently started working in the agricultural industry as a subject matter expert helping farmers and ranchers conserve their soil and water. I don’t have a farming background, but this podcast has helped me to learn more about the rural lifestyle and agriculture so that I can better help and understand the people I serve through my job. Keep up the good work!
