A special episode of Tech Bites featuring some of the best American heritage foods. Donny and Beth Drennan, owners of Broadbent Hams, join us from Kentucky. Broadbent’s famously sold a 16-pound ham at auction for $1.6 Million and is a cornerstone of the Momofuku Ssäm Bar ham plate. Broadbent has been in business for more than 100 years and is one of America’s best and oldest hams. One of the counties newest companies – only a few weeks old – eFowl – is an e-commerce platform for heritage breed poultry. Founder Austin Johnson is hoping to create an online resource for small farmers and consumers to support sustainable agriculture and growth in localized food production. Erin Fairbanks, Heritage Radio Network executive director and host of the Farm Report, adds her expert point-of-view to the discussion.
