Are you a lifetime farmer, just getting started, or looking to take the leap? Chris Blanchard’s Farmer to Farmer Podcast is for you, providing a fresh and honest look at everything from soil fertility and record-keeping to getting your crops to market without making yourself crazy.
Chris was a veteran farmer and educator who draws on over 25 years of experience for his work. Tap into and learn from an archive of his engaging podcast, keynote addresses, workshops, articles and more to inform and inspire farmers and farm educators.
An innovative and collaborative leader in our organic farming community, Chris Blanchard unfortunately left our world too early in 2019. His dedication to farmer education continues through this website, archiving his hundreds of podcasts, speeches and numerous other resources he cultivated through his company, Purple Pitchfork.
Purple Pitchfork was Chris Blanchard’s educational and outreach organization dedicated to helping farmers and their farm businesses. Chris provided consulting, coaching, speaking, and writing support to thousands of farmers and organizations in the areas of effectiveness and productivity, marketing, business planning and development, post-harvest handling, food safety, greenhouse crop production, and more. We continue this informational website in this spirit and his memory.
