On today's episode of The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks is chatting with Atina Diffley, farmer at Gardens of Eagan outside of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and author of the new book Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works. Tune in to hear Atina recount the experiences of being an organic farmer during a boom of big agriculture, the importance of organic certification, and trying to run and salvage a farm during suburban construction in Minnesota. Atina also explains what is the process of "soil building" entails, and how you can convert a chemically farmed plot into a true organic farm in 36 months. Now, Atina has given up farming to focus on writing, speaking, and telling her and her husband's stories. Tune in to learn more! This episode has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

"The Monsantos and these organizations that a lot of people complain about are not just going to change because it's the right thing to do. We as farmers and consumers have to create the lives and world that we want, and we have the power to do that." -- Atina Diffley on The Farm Report

This week on The Main Course, Patrick is joined by Nicole Taylor aka The Food Culturist, host of Hot Grease. Patrick and Nicole have a heated discussion in the wake of Thanksgiving about food access in low-income communities. Are people responsible for making good choices on their own, or should they be given more access to good food? Later in the show, they shift the conversation to the Occupy Wall Street movement as it relates to food. Finally, Patrick plays a pre-recorded segment with Red Wattle pork farmer Larry Sorrel of Lazy S Farm. This episode was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

This week brings the exciting inaugural episode of Erica Wides's new show Let's Get Real so turn on your AC because the kitchen is about to get real hot. Back in the day you knew the difference between junk food (candy) and food (vegetables); between food that we knew what it was (apples) and food that we didn’t want to know (Twinkies). This is where Erica comes in each week to walks you down the aisles of the surreal world of food, serving up a heaping dose of reality by separating the food from the foodiness so you can forage, hunt, gather, trap and fish for real food anywhere, even in a foodiness-filled mega market. This special first episode is brought to you by The Hearst Ranch.
