Running a machinery-free farm with nature inspired principles and techniques.
In This Podcast: As one of two new millennial farmers, Lyndsay Jacobs and her business partner Lauren are working their farm using their own labor rather than rely on technology. With the exception of removing some sod in the early days, they are growing and harvesting the crops on their small farm without the use of any typical industrial machines. As they bring their vegetables to market they know they are doing the right thing by all the positive feedback they are getting from their customers!
