This week’s episode of the Shinecast features an interview with Jen Barnett, co-owner of Freshfully, a local-foods market in Birmingham, Alabama (and beyond) with a mission to make more local food available to more people—more conveniently.
Freshfully is starting to expand to other cities across the Southeast. If you’re a farmer and want to sell through Freshfully or a locavore looking for another source for local foods visit Freshfully.
The Shine Springs Farm Podcast (the “Shinecast”) is available for subscription via iTunes.
Music this week comes from Nashville recording artist Shane Tutmarc—next week’s featured guest. We start off the show with the intro to “Goodbye Love” and end with the track “All Out of Love” (played in its entirety, with Shane’s permission). Shane is a super-nice guy and I look forward to bringing you the interview next week. Be sure to check out Shane’s website, where you’ll find links to his videos and social media connections.
In this episode you also get this week’s Shine Springs Farm update and a brief commentary on why I chose to hand-seed Ollie’s Garden.
Do you use a Hoss seeder? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this made-in-the-USA machine. Great review of the Hoss seeder here on Russell’s Produce site, and I’m considering making this investment for the Spring 2013 planting season.
I’d love to hear your comments on the Shinecast, as well as topics for future episodes, suggestions for guests and questions about Shine Springs Farm. Feedback is great and I want to make the Shinecast something that goes beyond a chronicle of my experiences with Shine Springs Farm. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions and feedback in the comment section below, on Facebook or via iTunes reviews.
