Farmers Talk to Berkshire Grown – Episode 2
Abby Ferla – Foxtrot Farm – Ashfield, MA.
Foxtrot Farm is a certified organic 2 acre farm in the hilltowns of western Massachusetts with a focus on growing foods that walk the line between medicine and food. Foxtrot Farm implements no-till farming systems and avoids the use of fossil fuels. In this conversation, Abby talks about the launch of their new Resilient & Healing Foods CSA program, food justice and activist farming perspective and the importance of Instagram as a marketing tool for the farm.
In this podcast series Berkshire Grown hears from farmers both in and beyond the Berkshires to learn about the different ways farmers are farming and getting their products to market. These 30 minute interviews let farmers share their own experiences out in the field, in the barn and marketing their farm’s products.
These podcasts are a part of Berkshire Grown’s Technical Assistance program to connect farmers with other farmers in order to learn from each other.
