Ryan and Tiffany Batalden, August 13, 2012

Ryan and Tiffany Batalden had jobs in the city but a strong desire to farm. With the help of Ryan’s parents and some like-minded landowners, they have succeeded in making a place for themselves in organic livestock and crop farming at a time when land prices and rents make it very difficult for new farmers to get started. This interview, a follow-up to a Bat done years ago when Ryan and Tiffany were just starting, provides a glimpse of the kind of intelligence, technology, and luck needed to make a small farm work in the current economic climate

The interview can also be downloaded as a video podcast (300.9 MB) or as an audio file (.mp3 – 53.6 MB). A transcript is available as a Word document or pdf.
