Learning from Experience

Farmers used to learn how to farm by growing up on a farm. As the number of food producers in our country dwindles, this is less and less often the case. For a young person to learn how to farm they now have to  seek out a mentor or internship program where they can intensively study. Tyler Jones, of Afton Field Farm in Corvallis, Oregon, went through Joel Salatin's intensive year-long internship program at Polyface Farms in Virginia. We speak with both of them at a Field Day hosted by Tyler and his wife, Alicia, at their farm in Corvallis.  Read more about Afton Field Farm on Alicia's blog:
