Podcast Episode 2 – Niagara Escarpment Organics

On today’s episode I sit down with Ryan Hayhurst of Niagara Escarpment Organics in the beautiful Beaver Valley.  His property, located near Kimberley Ontario, is a permaculture design jewel, still in its early stages of inception.  As we enjoy a cup of coffee from Ironwood Coffee Roasters in front of the wood stove Ryan and I talk about farming for your specific site, medicinal herbs, health and wellness, and finally we briefly touch on his new venture with Craigleith Cannabis Co.  This is Farm Talk Radio, keep your shovel in the ground and stay tuned for more farm talk!

Our goal with Farm Talk Radio is to tell a story across ​Canada, weaving a mosaic of landscapes that focus on the people, places, and things that inspire change — To give airtime to the hardworking men and women who are feeding the bodies, hearts, and minds of our great country. Farming can at times be a lonely and isolating profession. It is one filled with numerous hardships. The long hours, physically demanding work, and constant struggle to work in harmony with Mother Nature take their toll. Furthermore, the ever-changing extremes of climate change will only add to these pressures. Not to mention, the financial risk of being an entrepreneur and running a business to feed and support yourself and your family. Yet this is a field of work that continues to attract some of the most incredible and inspiring change makers that I have been fortunate enough to meet. Spend a weekend at your local farmers market and you’ll know what I am talking about. Because of this, it will be an honour to sit down and listen to them and help them tell their story. Farm Talk Radio explores the challenges these agents of change are going through and the gifts that this journey has brought them. And we’d like to share all of this with you.
