On today's episode of The Farm Report, Erin Fairbanks is chatting with Atina Diffley, farmer at Gardens of Eagan outside of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and author of the new book Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works. 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
