The No-Till Growers Podcast Network

May 13, 2024

Host Alex Ball sits down for a farmer roundtable with Kolin Buzerak of Starry Ridge Farm, and Caitlin and Simon Yevzelman of Cedar Field Farm to discuss how they access farm land, working with those in their community, and making their farms work in these times of high interest rates and expensive land values. We discuss the value of connecting with those around you to build your farm resource base as well the commitment it takes long-term to build a successful small-scale farming business.
