Today’s episode takes us to East Dummerston Vermont where we visit with Jack Manix of Walker Farm.
Jack is celebrating two major milestones this spring when I visited, the first being 50 years of marriage with his wife Karen; and the 2nd milestone is this is also their 50 year farming. This interview gives us a tour of his farm and garden center which includes 25 varying greenhouse structures. Some of these are the earliest of designs with hoops and plastic and some of them are the highest of tech including fully automated glass houses.
We then take a ride in the truck to set eyes on the fields, and visit the Christmas tree farm where he then shares some of the wisdom that has kept the farm business in operation for his entire career.
