Farmers Talk to Berkshire Grown – Episode 5
Meg Bantle and Laura Tupper-Palches-Full Well Farm, Adams, MA
This week’s conversation is shared with Meg Bantle and Laura Tupper-Palches of Full Well Farm in Adams, MA in Northern Berkshire County. In their second growing season, Meg and Laura talk about some of the things they learned during their first year, what it means to steward old agricultural land, the importance of no-till, small-scale and the value of public access to the farm’s land and food. These farmer women discuss the significance of farmer mentorship in their start-up business planning as well as their decision to offer a flower and veggie CSA. A few marketing social media tips thrown in there for good measure, too.
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.
