… but first, a word from our sponsors
First, and foremost, our work is—in large part—supported by YOU! Yes, you. Our purpose is to bring you—the farmer—the best no-till growing content out there. For free. Did you get something out of season one? If you find this podcast to be of value, and want to see No-Till Growers grow, support our work for as little as $2/month on Patreon or Venmo/Paypal a onetime contribution. At 30+ episodes a year, that’s less than a dollar for each episode. Quite literally, we couldn’t do it without y’all. Let’s take it one step further, help us add video of guest farms!

BCS products came to America in the early 1970’s at a time when Americans were re-discovering the joys of vegetable gardening and pursuing self-sufficiency. Almost forty years later, there are now many tens of thousands of BCS owners in the US and Canada. Like BCS in Italy, the mission of BCS America is to increase your productivity and reduce the physical effort required to accomplish your outdoor tasks, projects, and farm work. Now introducing the 30” spreader attachment for adding a consistent layer of compost/amendments to a standard 30” bed.
… and, we’re back!
Cue that theme music.
We couldn’t have found better guests to kick off season two of the podcast than Keren and Mikey of Mossy Willow Farm. We cover a wide range of topics, from the power of intentional internships (shout out to former podcast guest Singing Frogs Farm) to starting a no-till farm from scratch on heavy clay soil to making the most of labor in a no-till system and regenerative farming in the context of capitalism. Whoa. We also talk no dogma, the paperpot transplanter in a no-till setup, and self-care both on and—maybe more importantly—off the farm.
