This week Jupiter’s Almanac falls on Veterans Day, so Matthew catches up with his old friend, fellow veteran, and cattle farmer, Marvin Frink of Briarwood Cattle Farm in Red Springs, North Carolina. Their conversation touches on Marvin’s transition from the military into farming, why founding Briarwood has helped Marvin to cope with PTSD, and how he is re-learning to love himself. They spotlight the Farmer Veteran Coalition and give listeners a useful trick for knowing whether a cow has been grass-fed.
