Tune in and learn more about Alex's restaurants and Spanish cooking! This program has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"I have an affinity for [Spanish food]...I just understand it intuitively. I think that makes it easy to fall in love with something when you find you have a real connection to it that flows easily."

"Txikito is a Basque restaurant, and it's really a love letter to my husband and what he left behind."

-- Alex Raij on U Look Hungry

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
