Art of Manliness Podcast #47: Saving the Family Farm with Forrest Pritchard (+ Book Giveaway)
Posted By Brett On June 7, 2013 @ 2:54 pm In Podcast | Comments Disabled
Welcome back to another edition of the Art of Manliness Podcast!
In today’s podcast we talk to Forrest Pritchard, farmer at Smith Meadows Farm  in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He’s recently published a book entitled Gaining Ground: A Story of Farmers’ Markets, Local Food, and Saving the Family Farm . An enjoyable read — made me want to cash out and start a farm. Forrest and I discuss his story of how he saved a farm that’s been in his family for eight generations using sustainable farming practices. Even if you have zero interest in becoming a farmer, this is a great podcast to listen to — one of my favorites.
