Today’s episode comes to you from Jericho Vermont where we visit with Mark Fasching and Christa Alexander of Jericho Settlers farm. We learn how they grew their farm from selling at their local farmers market, to producing good food year round wholesaling storage crops into Vermont’s food system. They share the reasons why they stopped raising livestock and doubled down on veg, as well as reflect on what advice they’d give to themselves starting out, and how that answer would be different for new farmers in today’s age of agriculture. Mark and Christa both share the struggle of managing a business and how they’ve structured that to work together with raising their family.
