This week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast we chat with Jill Ragan, head gardener at Whispering Willow Farm. She and her family grow food for themselves and a CSA in Central Arkansas.
Her new book, Tiny but Mighty Farm, is about cultivating high-yields and self-sufficiency from a home farm. We talk about what to think through before starting a homestead or farm, and Jill shares her tips for keeping it all running smoothly.
