Brian Quiring, July 31, 2012

Brian Quiring raises organic vegetables in Wilder, MN and owns the Wilder Thymes Natural Foods Store in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Wilder Thymes raises over 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers, without the use of conventional chemicals or fertilizers. Some of their produce plots have never been used in conventional farming, while those that have, were last used for it in 2007. Since then, buffer zones have been established on all sides, and the soil has been rejuvenated, to provide the cleanest, purest, most flavorful and nutrient rich produce we possibly can.

The interview can also be downloaded as a video podcast (304.0 MB) or as an audio file (.mp3 – 54.1 MB). A transcript is available as a Word document or pdf.

Wilder Thymes believes in diversity and growing things in harmony with nature, while striving to offer its customers a wide selection of naturally grown varieties. They do not raise any varieties known to be produced by Seminis / Monsanto, Nunhems / Bayer, or Rogers / Syngenta, as they do not wish to support companies who are breeders of genetically modified plants and seeds, and who manufacture chemicals which contribute to the contamination of the planet.
