    Small Farm In Waukesha County Works To Show Why Organic Food Matters

    Linda Halley is general manager of Gwenyn Hill Farm in the Town of Delafield. "Gwenyn" means honeybee in Welsh. Halley says the name is a nod to generations of people who farmed this lush valley, starting back in 1842. “A Williams married the original farmer’s daughter, another Williams bought the land next door, and so this was just a valley of Williams farmers.

This is my only audio source for Milwaukee news. I think,as a podcast, a better format would be to tie the stories into a once-daily episode, rather than short segments. Nevertheless I’m very happy to have it.

Stenographic journalism ....

... But the best currently available in the Milwaukee area. The management is openly hostile to the ideal of "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted," so know what you're consuming when consuming this media offering. This is often "one side says this, the other side disagrees" stenography. More fact-checking would be appreciated.
