grassfed-life-podcast.jpg.74d377d537d0c621f76b1a03a9ff0e39.jpgAs many of you know, I had the pleasure of being asked to be a presenter this past March at PV3 in San Diego.  In addition to speaking at PV3, another opportunity was extended to me from Diego Footer of Permaculture Voices.

Diego asked if I would be interested in doing a weekly podcast with him this season in which he follows our farm week by week from April thru November.  I love to speak and teach, and jumped at this new opportunity to share an in depth look into our farming lifestyle.

On April 4th, 2016 the first episode of “Grass Fed Life” debuted on the Permaculture Voices podcast and was downloaded over 3,000 times in the first 24 hours (extremely humbling to say the least).  Since then, three additional episodes have been released covering a broad range of topics from the nuts and bolts of pastured poultry to the ins and outs of farmer’s markets and how we plan our whole farming season.

So far the feedback on the show has been fantastic, and I’m having a great time doing it with Diego.  He asks such great, insightful questions that really prompt me to dig deep and think.  As a result, we’ve had some great conversations that many listeners have found to be very helpful.

Please take a moment to check out the Grass Fed Life podcast.  Also, please consider supporting what Diego is doing with PV by contributing to keep the content both free and void of commercials.  You can contribute as little as $1/month, equaling only .05/episode.  I’m pretty sure there is at least a nickels worth of advice in each podcast on Permaculture Voices!

There is a new show every Monday, all season long and we’ll cover a broad range of topics – topics that don’t get discussed in this space nearly enough (or at all) and need to be.  So tune in, have a listen and give us some feedback.

One final note:  I’m doing this podcast because I love to teach, and I want you to be successful.  It will be a long farming season, come along for the ride with us each week.  I hope that you learn something new and can apply this knowledge to your own farming endeavors.

    • I liked this one because the guy actually has a MAG and speaks from experience. For sure I'm one of the guys that pushes hard for a MAG. Probably because I've got a lot going and I'd rather have 500 perennials for five families than the 100 or so we have now. If your in central Canada and don't mind travelling once in a while check out my looking for a MAG post

    • Today we are creating a two hour long video about how to build a Rocket Oven.  This design is for indoor use although we show versions that have been modified to be weather resistant.  A Rocket Oven will do all of your baking without the environmental disaster associated with natural gas or electric ovens.  For those of you living or considering off grid, this uses fuel that is plentiful and readily found - as opposed to off-grid's dirty little grid secret: "propane".  As an added bonus, the environmental impact is far smaller than any other type of oven.

      Rocket Ovens use the same "engine" as a rocket mass heater.  An  insulated j-tube that pushes the burn temp so high that the smoke and creosote from a fire is also used as fuel.  The exhaust is very clean and the heat is hyper focused on the task at hand.  The designs in this video are "white oven" designs - the exhaust does not mingle with the food.

    • That's my great grandfather's barn. Must be over 50yrs old and straight as when it was first built. He helped enough others and built enough community to get this feat done. His kids and even great-grandchildren see this barn and know anything is possible. If he could build this with horses. There are no excuses for any of us.

      That is one of the stories I'm going to outline below. I'm going...

    • STANDING RANGERS ORDERS, MAJOR ROBERT ROGERS, 1759
      1. Don't forget nothing.
      2. Have your musket clean as a whistle, hatchet scoured, sixty rounds powder and ball, and be ready to march at a minute's warning.
      3. When you're on the march, act the way you would if you was sneaking up on a deer. See the enemy first.
      4. Tell the truth about what you see and what you do. There is an army depending on us for correct information. You can lie all you please when you tell other folks about the Rangers, but don't never lie to a Ranger or officer.
      5. Don't never take a chance you don't have to.
      6. When we're on the march we march single file, far enough apart so one shot can't go through two men.
      7. If we strike swamps, or soft ground, we spread out abreast, so it's hard to track us.
      8. When we march, we keep moving till dark, so as to give the enemy the least possible chance at us.
      9. When we camp, half the party stays awake while the other half sleeps.
      10. If we take prisoners, we keep' em separate till we have had time to examine them, so they can't cook up a story between' em.
      11. Don't ever march home the same way. Take a different route so you won't be ambushed.
      12. No matter whether we travel in big parties or little ones, each party has to keep a scout 20 yards ahead, 20 yards on each flank, and 20 yards in the rear so the main body can't be surprised and wiped out.
      13. Every night you'll be told where to meet if surrounded by a superior force.
      14. Don't sit down to eat without posting sentries.
      15. Don't sleep beyond dawn. Dawn's when the French and Indians attack.
      16. Don't cross a river by a regular ford.
      17. If somebody's trailing you, make a circle, come back onto your own tracks, and ambush the folks that aim to ambush you.
      18. Don't stand up when the enemy's coming against you. Kneel down, lie down, hide behind a tree.
      19. Let the enemy come till he's almost close enough to touch, then let him have it and jump out and finish him up with your hatchet.
