John Chester, of Apricot Lane Farms, explains on today's show how a small farm can make a BIG difference. And he challenges those of us who are not farmers to look for ways to do the same.
He covers topics ranging from what led him and Molly to become farmers in the first place, to our need to respect the environment and livestock, to the impermanence of life, to the importance of composting, to the challenges behind establishing a farm that can regenerate soil, provide nutrient-rich food, and be sustainable and beneficial to the planet! He shares their challenges as well as the secrets to their success--that have to do primarily with the harmony and beauty of a balanced farm ecosystem.
His farm, Apricot Lane Farms, is featured in the film “The Biggest Little Farm,” now showing in theaters. You'll understand why it is so inspiring as you listen to his story.
