This week on Greenhorn Radio, our hostess Severine von Tscharner Fleming interviews Jacob Cowgill of Prairie Heritage Farm outside of Conrad, Montana. Prairie Heritage Farm is in the tradition of old-time Montana farms that existed decades ago: diversified, small-scale, and locally-based. Listen in as Jacob discusses the challenges of starting a farm with a full-time job and a family, selling in a small direct market, and some of the upcoming grain ventures of Prairie Heritage Farm. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"When the winter hit, we started thinking about the next season and how we were going to make it work. We made the nonsensical decision that I would quit my full-time job with benefits." --Jacob Cowgill on Greenhorn Radio

"It's really amazing to see whats going on elsewhere, and see that we're part of something larger going on in the U.S."--Jacob Cowgill on Greenhorn Radio

"There are more slaves alive today than there ever have been in human history. There are still agricultural slaves, for example, in Florida."

"For a vibrant agrarianism to come back in this country, we have to deal with this issue of [servitude and] slavery."

--CJ Sentell on Greenhorn Radio
