This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks welcomes Farmer Yon, aka Yonnette Fleming, Founder of The Hattie Carthan Market, to the show. At the top of the show, Farmer Yon explains that The Hattie Carthan Community Farmers Market is a grassroots community revitalization project in Central Brooklyn, NYC, founded in 2009. The market, as well as the organization's many facets, seeks to create a healthy community where each member has access to fresh food and the resources required to grow and distribute it in the Bedford Stuyvesant community. She goes on to explain how she initially saw a need for more urban agriculture and how she took it upon herself to engage the neighborhood and its youth to help the market flourish from the ground up. After the break, Erin and Farmer Yon discuss the notion of the farmer and chef and how these interconnected figures tend to be kept separate. They discuss ways to possibly rectify this discrepancy in order to enhance all aspects of the farm to table experience. Tune in for a wonderful conversation and to learn how to volunteer with the organization! This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.

"In order to be sustainable, sustainability has to do with the perpetuation of practices." [6:49]

"With the creation of the new farm I was able to build my curriculum so that the youths may begin wrapping their heads around herbalism, and in a natural way." [9:20]

This week on Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer chats with Jeannette Beranger of the American Livestock Breed Conservancy and Chris Ritthaler of the Farmer Veteran Coalition. Tune in and hear how the ALBC helps set up veterans who are interested in taking up farming after serving for their country. Learn why heritage livestock appeals to these vets and how they adapt to life on the farm even if they have no background in agriculture. Also learn more about the unemployment epidemic that veterans in our country face and why the general public should learn more about what veterans actually did when they served. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"There's been a huge upsurge in interest in traditional breeds over the past few years."

--Jeanette Beranger of the American Livestock Breed Conservancy on Straight, No Chaser

"There are a few reasons you're seeing vets interested in heritage breeds. Because a lot of the vets don't have a background in agriculture, they are taking a real close look at their situation and financials and realizing they have to be smart. Heritage breeds fit a niche market and don't require a large level of infrastructure."

"The unemployment rate for veterans is significantly higher than the national average. The unemployment rate for vets in the post 9/11 era is over 10%."

"Less than 10% of the US has ever served in the military. There's a huge disconnect between the knowledge base of what a veteran does."

--Chris Ritthaler of the Farmer Veteran Coalition on Straight, No Chaser
