A PODCAST FOR CALIFORNIA FARMERS
In these podcast episodes we hear directly from small family farmers throughout California, getting the real information and the stories behind the food we grow and eat. In this series, we pay particular attention to the innovative work small-scale farmers are doing to keep their food safe to eat and share techniques– farmer to farmer.
