The No-Till Growers Podcast Network

Nov 20, 2023

Today's episode is about a not-so-obvious climate adaptive farm strategy, tree syrups. I, Natalie, know this might be only tangentially related to your production system, and I have yet to be told by Jesse and the team to reign it in, but I love the idea of wild foods that can be sustainably harvested. Selfishly, I just wanted an excuse to learn more about this topic. David Moore is a researcher at the University of New Hampshire and he has been looking at different tree syrups for his dissertation. Because I'm a huge maple syrup fan, I did force him to talk about maple syrup production, but we also get into some of the other trees he's been tapping.
