Ag Proud - Idaho Podcast

Here’s a breakdown of the articles we’ve featured in this podcast:

(1) What began as a journey to eliminate brokers and handlers, has led developers Kurt Mason and Tim Cornie to create a mill in Buhl, Idaho for organic grains. Now consumers find their products on shelves, even at big box stores.

(2) Editor Sundee Holtman introduces our next guest, as she interviewed Ryan Robertson in Hidden Valley, Idaho at R-Ag Inc. Beyond straight fences and tall crops, what makes his operation “work”?

(3) You can farm without buying land – and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Silver Creek Seed has operated on rented ground since 2006 and is successful with their potato seed operation. Mark and Jill Johnson of Bellvue lead us through their story of creating a business enterprise.

(4) Columnist Paul Marchant admits there should probably be an intervention for those (like him) who are addicted to bull sale catalogs. And it’s that time of year again … those catalogs will start showing up any day.
