Episode: Digging in the dirt w/Simon Martinez of Flaca Vaca Farm

 My guest today on "Digging in the Dirt" is all about the beef….Grass fed beef. Although I suspect that Simon is also all about the Kale. Simon Martinez, along with his partner Robert, raises Red Poll cows, Berkshire pigs and chickens on their farm, Flaca Vaca Farm (Skinny Cow) in upstate NY, and they do it in a very thoughtful, nutritionally sensitive, humane manner. Today we are going to learn a little bit about actively taking care of the land and running an animal farm the right way. On "Digging in the Dirt" on Listener supported WPKN.org
