A new podcast series coming soon! Whether his guests are discussing employment philosophy or the best techniques for cultivating carrots, Chris draws on over 25 years of experience to get at the big ideas and practical details that make a difference on their farms and in their lives. If you've been farming for a lifetime, are just getting started, or are still dreaming about your farm of the future, the Farmer to Farmer podcast provides a fresh and honest look at what it takes to make your farm work.
There are thousands of different tools available for farmers today. The question is, which one is right for you? Through my own experiences and observations, I've started to collect a list of the ones that I really love and would recommend to others. This includes tools and resources related to general market farming, organic farming, farm finances, farm equipment, repetitive motions, food safety, greenhouse production, distribution and marketing, post-harvest handling, and more!
Purple Pitchfork is an educational and outreach organization dedicated to helping farmers and their farm businesses. We provide consulting, coaching, speaking, and writing in the areas of effectiveness and productivity, marketing, business planning and development, post-harvest handling, food safety, greenhouse crop production, and more.
