Episode 107: Into the Wild
On today’s episode we’re celebrating the warmer weather and the increase of daylight with some wild wild love. We’ve been finding ourselves reconnecting with the great outdoors in a multitude of ways here at the farm, so we lined up a slew of our friends to give us insight on everything from moon cycles and harvesting to soil microbes and edible weeds. We even crash a wild chefs-only celebration of ramps, meat, and pirate-camaraderie.
First, Carol Berman, our sommelier and founder of Class in a Glass talks full vineyard ecosystems with Shelley - defining what all of these organic and natural wine labels mean and taking the woo-woo out of biodynamic production. Then, Kendra sits down with Victoria Lambert, our website maven and dietetics expert, to learn about the science of soil and how we can all compost at home. Finally, we hang with the ever-so-inspirational Ben Walmer and a bunch of foraging fools at Ramp Fest 2019 where we combine breaking bread and wild ingredients for an unforgettable smorgasboard of delicious food and wild people.
