    1. Ha me too. The more I think about the regenerative farming cycle and how obviously cows/pigs/chickens become more cows/pigs/chickens, the more I wish I could set up a compound on just an acre or two, but I'm a long way away from anything like that. I know it's not that simple either. 

      Part of me considers going back to the midwest where I could afford it, but then we have to deal with winter, frost, tornado season, etc. There are costs outside of green paper to consider. Who knows, but a show like this does get me daydreaming about that kind of life too.

      1. Yeah I live right outside Philadelphia, so if this election shit goes bad I feel like it’s going to be ground zero for the public disputes that follow a split decision or Trump victory (even though I feel like a Biden victory will be a huge setback in general as far as personal freedom and foreign policies go). Hopefully there’s time to grind it out, I’ve got at least a year or two before I can afford relocating further west into the Appalachians where there’s plenty of farmland and water security. But I would love to have even enough land for a few dairy goats and chickens even if the ranch/cattle thing is a pipe dream. 
         

        But anyway, a great episode with lots of information and hope for anyone wanting to get into regenerative agriculture, even if it’s just for self sustainment, seems like it’s possible to make some supplemental income or enough to barter with. Been drinking raw milk for about 5 years and it’s really so different from pasteurized that I don’t even mind paying double the price. I get grass fed beef when I can (from a picky distributor, so it’s not just the stuff that fits the minimum regulatory standards). I guess for now I might just need to get an extra freezer and think about splitting an animal up with some friends straight from the source.

  1. Fantastic episode Greg, its the reason I always go to THC your subject range is exceptional! And I think its great how you weave questions in from other shows you've learnt from. Creating an intricate web of knowledge. 

    I'm fortunate enough to live in regional Australia where I have access to farms such as Dougs but it brings to light the importance of sharing this information to others so they too can source the quality food so lacking in our fast food, disconnected paradigm. I've shared it with a few maintstream farming friends in the hopes of shifting their focus cause there is definitely a demand for it. Australia has it's own "only profits matter" when it comes to agriculture mentality and shows like this highlight the need for that mentality to shift. smiley

  2. The reality is that there is no nutritional requirement for humans to eat the flesh of other beings and doing so can have adverse health effects. However, anything that reduces the horrors of factory farming is welcome. Thanks for the episode.

  3. Great Show, I am in the beginning stages of starting a biodynamic homestead on 2 acres.  Lots of great info in this episode, I won’t have to learn everything the hard way.  I am super worried about groceries stores and the vaccine, like what Ticketmaster is doing.  Lots of good ideas in this episode Gregg, thanks for getting it done.  The collapse of the food system would obviously be very bad for many people but it could also be a blessing in disguise!  It may be the cure for Cancer and shit?  No more processed radiated food!  Again, super positive great episode from the King Of Podcasts.

  4. Okay, I have an Android device and I can't seem to get this player to go for more than 10 minutes or so without cutting off and jumping back to the beginning…also the download tab just starts playing with no controls..iv been subscribing off and on for a few years now and this has always been an issue..WTF?

    1. Sorry for the trouble, I would first ask which browser you're using? 

      Second I would say that if you press and hold the download tab, you should see an option for "save as" or "download link." This is standard Android behavior, so it's not something I can change. 

      Third, I would say that getting a podcasting app is so much easier than coming to the THC site itself, there are good recommendations and instructions on the FAQ page you can access from the menu bar. 
       

      I hope that helps!

    1. Try using the Chrome browser and it will function as I described, or you can look up how to download links on the Fixfox browser, if it's not press and hold, it must be something similar.

  5. Thanks to both of you. I am a plus member for a long time and this is my first review. One of my favourite episode and hope for more like this one. Greetings from Toronto.

  6. Recently signed up for a plus membership and this show was definitely worth the second hour. I loved the inclusion of Doug's internship program for prospective homesteaders – this was all super useful. 

    It was also nice to hear someone with a different spiritual perspective than most guests. I love a good monotheist take on the world every once in a while. It was a breath of fresh air. 

  7. Greg, a little constructive criticism from an old/new subscriber. It would be very helpful to me, and maybe others, if your team posted links to a guest's previous shows, if there are any. Unless I'm missing something which is entirely possible. Thank you for the show, I hold you in high regard as a man who took a risk with his life path, and went for the dream. I wish I had when I was much younger. Maybe one day I can tell you how I found your show. I am most certainly not in your demographic target audience.

    Cheers,

    Larry
