This week on The Farm Report concludes the three part series on the sheep and lamb industry. Guest-host Talia Ralph fills in for Erin Fairbanks today and is joined by the co-producer of the series, John Wilkes. The first guest is Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of English Lamb and Beef Executive. EBLEX exists to enhance the profitability and sustainability of the English beef and lamb sector. He talks about sheep in the global markets and how, for instance, the UK sheep sector could be affected should the American market open up. John also asks Jean-Pierre about how the possible outcome of the Scottish referendum could affect the lamb and sheep industry. After the break, Talia and John speak with Cody Hiemke who is a lamb buyer with Niman Ranch in San Francisco. Cody gives a great overview of where the US industry is currently and what to expect from the sheep and lamb industry in the future. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"We need to keep lamb in the forefront of consumers' minds." [7:40]

--Jean-Pierre Garnier on The Farm Report

"Here in the Midwest and out east, there's a lot of demand for the direct market of lamb." [28:00]

This week on The Farm Report, Erin ushers in blueberry season! She welcomes Ed Flanagan, CEO of Wyman's of Maine to the program. Wyman's of Maine is a family owned company that specializes in the growing and marketing of wild blueberries. At the top of the show, Ed explains that Wyman's of Maine believes in the Japanese philosophy known as "kaizen," roughly translated as continuous improvement. Simply put: Wyman's has to do all they can to grow their business. Erin and Ed then delve in to discuss the details of the blueberry business, beginning with the distinctions between the wild and cultivated blueberry, Wyman's approach to the growing season, as well as the topic of honey bees and how vital they are to the business. With concerns such as colony collapse disorder, a strange phenomenon where worker bees abruptly disappear, Ed explains how Wyman's had to research, adapt and become invested in bee-keeping to further sustain their livelihood. Grab a smoothie and tune in for a great discussion on the super fruit! This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

"A wild blueberry is much smaller, about three times smaller, than a cultivated blueberry. Generally, the flavor of a fruit is condensed around the skin, so in a handful of wild blueberries you're going to get more flavor." [7:14]

"We aspire to get to that point someday where we absolutely need no preventative chemicals." [12:50]

"What happened for us that was pretty good luck was right about the time that blueberries were being regarded as a healthy food was just about the same time that people started drinking smoothies." [19:45]

"We are out of business if there are no honey bees to put in our fields." [26:26]

This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks speaks with Doug Fine, author of the book Hemp Bound: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution. In an interesting discussion about the controversial substance that has been outlawed in its time among many states, Erin and Doug discuss the benefits of hemp and why hemp production should be something that is encouraged throughout the country. From the ground up, Doug walks us through the details of the hemp plant itself to his thoughts on the rebuilding of the hemp seed's biodiversity. With many uses that the average consumer might not recognize, such as material for clothing as well as houses, he goes on to share that with more production, hemp could help the country's farmers by offering a viable, profitable product to grow and sell. Tune in to find out more on why the stereotypes that surround hemp might need to be re-examined. This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard and Winery.

"Hemp is any variety of the cannabis plant that is 0.3% THC or less... Unless you get high smoking broccoli or corn, no, you can't feel psychoactive effects from hemp." [2:13]

"Hemp seed oil, which is extremely profitable, is an omega superfood. I put it in my morning shake every day. It basically does what flax oil or cod liver oil does, in terms of high proteins, in some cases better." [19:17]
