Podcast: Seed Oils Start to Finish with Bevin Cohen

Our guest on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast this week is Bevin Cohen. Nerd alert! He’s here to talk about growing and pressing your own edible oils.

Bevin runs Small House Farm in central Michigan, where he and his family run a 3-acre homestead and herbal apothecary. He’s also the author of The Complete Guide to Seed & Nut Oils among other books. We had a lot of fun chatting about this exciting topic.
