Wrapping up another great season, Erin Fairbanks introduces listeners to the new guest host of The Farm Report starting in 2016: Holli Cederholm. Holli Cederholm’s involvement in organic agriculture spans over a decade—starting with farm apprenticeships wedged between completing a B.A. in environmental writing from Unity College. In 2010-2014, she focused on celebrating the diversity of vegetables grown exclusively from open-pollinated seed with the operation of her own Proud Peasant Farm. During this time, Holli also cut flowers, tinctured herbs, put by the season’s bounty, fermented small batches of tempeh, and accompanied her herd of home-dairy goats for regular jaunts in the woods. She currently works as the general manager of a national agricultural non-profit dedicated to organic seed growers, and is seeking a permanent place to plant seeds and sow stories. Stay tuned for the next radio season as Holli digs into the nitty-gritty of agriculture with the people producing our food!
“I always love interacting with other farmers, whether they are producing the same crops as me or doing much larger acreage, it’s just that connectivity.” [23:30]
