Rising Meat Prices, Rising Feed Cost, Monsanto and GMO’s… lets chat

Summary

“Officials at the Federal Reserve have said there is little cause for concern about inflation, but consumers, struggling.”

“Feedlots are going to have to pivot in their plans with rising feed prices.”

“Surging feed prices will test recovery in US animal protein production”

Its not all doom and gloom for you, the small farmer. Yes, you will likely have to increase your prices, and if you haven’t yet, you should be considering it. But this doesn’t mean the end for the small farmers. Lets talk about WHY there are these price increases and the NASTY word “GMO.”

Lets discuss what Monsanto’s RoundUp chemical is doing to our corn and soy and livestock and learn how to navigate our customers to a healthy choice. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thefoxandcrowfarm/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thefoxandcrowfarm/support

Women in Farming: Nikki Seavey with Blueberry Ridge Ranch

Summary

Visit: http://www.blueberryridgenh.com

Owning a farm has always been a dream of ours! We used to drive around for years admiring farms in our state. We would daydream about the day when we could call our own farm home!

In 2017, those dreams became reality when we purchased a 17 acre farm in Pittsfield, NH. Over the years, we have worked hard to make many improvements to the property. There have been a lot of laughs, learning curves to overcome, good and bad days, sweat, cuss words, celebrations and even some tears — but here we are! We are proud to grow Blueberry Ridge Ranch in our community!

On our farm we raise pork, beef, broiler chickens, eggs, vegetables & flowers. We also partner with other farm based business owners to provide jams, honey, syrup, dry rubs & unique gifts!

Visit our honor system farm stand (open seasonally from dawn to dusk) or check out our online store! We look forward to bringing all of this farm awesomeness to YOU!!!

Sincerely,

Matt, Nikki, Brian and Eli the silly Labrador! — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thefoxandcrowfarm/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thefoxandcrowfarm/support

March Podcast Series: Woman and Farming

In search of a good topic for my new podcast series, I put myself out there and asked people what they wanted to hear. I had a lot of feedback, all from women, wanting to know more about how to get started.

While I love the idea of talking endlessly about this topic, I realize not everyone wants to hear from just me. So I reached out to my fellow farming lady friends and together we brought this podcast series to life.

If the idea of farming has planted itself in your brain, you will want to listen. Even if you are already farming today, its good to hear from others alike to strengthen your motivation and purpose for doing what you are already doing. Consider this a spiritual re-birth on the topic of “why the heck am I even doing this?” …. because we all know that is still spinning around in there somewhere.

We will talk about our lives for the farm, our careers, our relationships, our farms and our farm business’. Even if farming is NOT for you, and we know its not everyone, you will still want to listen to some of the inspiring stories of entrepreneurship and how to break the cycle of the 9-5.
