On this episode of The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks is talking with Morgan Weber and Ryan Pera of Revival Market, a free-standing market in Houston that provides fresh, local food to the community at a reasonable price. Tune in to hear about their backgrounds as chefs and farmers, the growing demand for quality domestic charcuterie, recent trends in butchering, and their decision to raise heritage breed Mangalista pigs. Erin also checks in with Stephanie Fisher, an old employee of Heritage Foods USA who is traveling the country interning on small dairy farms. Hear about Stephanie's time at Consider Bardwell Farm in West Pawlet, Vermont, and some of the troubles she and her boyfriend came across in eastern Washington. For those listeners interested in working on farms, tune in to hear some of Stephanie's tips about finding an ideal farming environment. This episode was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"The most important thing to us is quality so we feel like if we offer the quality, we're gonna put it at a fair price...Once we have the quality of the ingredients established, we really try to make that stand out." -- Morgan Weber on The Farm Report.

"There was tons of old rusted machinery all over the place, the animals all looked kind of sick, they were wearing these nylon twine collars, and the chickens were running around in their own filth..." -- Stephanie Fisher on farm internships, The Farm Report

Today marks THE FOOD SEEN’s 100th episode! A big thanks to all the past guests, future interviewees, lovely listeners, and everyone at HeritageRadioNetwork.com for all of the support! Scottish-born, NYC-based illustrator, Peter Arkle, comes to the studio for a visit. Hear about Peter creative process, on how to roast (and draw) the perfect coffee bean, sketching potatoes on lazy Sundays, and what makes him say “slainte”! Recently returning from a trip to his native Scotland, Peter worked with Scotch whiskey makers, anCnoc, on designing their next bottle. They’ll be launching their brand stateside at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic come mid May. In the meantime, check out this video of the distillery on the “behind the scenes” of their collaboration. This episode has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.

"A lot of drawing food involves slightly sort of abstract things. It's like blobs of color, and you get away from line quite quickly."

"Whiskey is perfect for the Scottish climate, and part of the New York climate." -- Peter Arkle on THE FOOD SEEN
