Sebastian and Hans Von Spakovsky Discuss Old School Ballot Fraud

"So let's look specifically hands. At what happened last year. And I'm not a former election commissioner. I'm not a lawyer, you served in the DOJ correct. There's a lot of so here's my layman's take and you tell me if it resonates. Conservatives are concerned. Justifiably aged because the incumbent president received more votes than any other incumbent president in history. And in four battleground states, the vote count was halted, and then the results reversed when the vote count was started again. So at least there are questions in four battleground states. For all the theories that have been developed since then, there are various baskets of theories. Some, rather ones, such as data farms in Germany, Venezuela, dominion, voting machines, memory sticks, algorithms, Wi-Fi access to electronic systems. My argument is a very simple one. If you know that the vote reversal occurred in places like Philadelphia in Atlanta, these are places that have, in some cases, Chicago, decades long history of fraught elections. And old school fraud is perhaps where we should start. The idea that ballot stuffing, filling out election ballots for people who aren't actually the person on the ballot. Does it make sense if you're looking to address these issues to follow the kiss principle and to stay with the keep it simple and start with that which we know, I mean, it's a joke, Philadelphia Chicago. These are box of jokes for decades. Before we get to these ideas of computers and algorithms, we have a lot of work to do with just very prosaic, do we not? Yeah, no, no, you've analyzed it exactly right. If you want to look at problems, the elections, you look at the ways elections have been stolen in the past. Right. And for those who think that doesn't still happen. I mean, look, you mentioned ballot stuffing, right? Okay, just a couple of weeks ago. And this didn't get this got almost no media attention. It was the media that is like covering this. Just a couple of weeks ago, a former election official in Philadelphia, who was actually a staffer for a member of the city council and who was responsible for running at least three polling places in Philly. She was indicted by the acting U.S. attorney for stuffing ballot boxes in her three precincts with bogus votes. It's an old school fraud. Yes, and for those who think that was isolated, no, last year in May also in Philadelphia, another election official was charged with exactly the same

Listen to the first sentence of the USA Today, which is just the left wing propaganda sheet. This is proof. Listen to the first sentence.

This is the writer Christine Brennan. I wonder if she went to which journalism school she went to Columbia University of Missouri. Given the chance to repudiate the lies and menace information spread last week. What lies in misinformation did he spread? I'd like to read further. Aaron Rodgers has been a great ambassador for our company, for much of the past decade, a company spokesman said in a statement to USA Today, sports Monday morning. We don't support some of the statements he has made but we respect his right to his own personal point of view. Do you know how rare that is in America?

"farm" Discussed on Farm To Table Talk

"So one of the misconceptions that i hear a lot is that subsidy payments or what's with this system a subsidy payments pay farmers to grow corn soybeans. It's actually. I don't want to get into it because it's so complicated. I talk about it in the book at length about how those work but you actually do not get paid for growing corn Beans so that and to add to that the payments that farms that are the size of ours ours is five hundred and thirty acres. That's above average for iowa. The average farm sizes three hundred sixty acres and the the payments that we get Like we get the payments even if we're not growing corn and soybeans we got something like forty five hundred dollars so it's not enough money to really inspire people to go and grow corners by means. It's just it's kinda hoping a you know the for for all the debt people have. It's helping people stay in that game and it. It helps people to justify like not being able to get out right because if you start growing fruits and vegetables. That's the time that you lose your subsidy and it's very complicated. There's real there's actually reasons for it. It's not just like terrible government policy there's actual reasons so But yes like you're saying in this region of the conservation reserve program so it's the crp is used very heavily. And so what at means is that people can't put areas of their farm that are available or Very heavily heavily forested into that program actually land that has been a. It's really not great soil. it's overused and they can put it in the sierra program and then get money to do like seeding prairie seating like. We're getting some money to restore pasture prairie that kind of thing so there are a lot of conservation programs that are actually out there. I think there's again a misunderstanding that there's no support for farmers doing positive things for the environment. That's just that's not true. We actually just enrolled in a program To promote butterfly habitat on the farm and will be paid to help. See that in to help. Have that for many many years. Actually news can go into the county Usda office right and why out about the programs and sign up to be in certain programs that are just in your county you can..

"farm" Discussed on Farm To Table Talk

"You know things that people would like to be able to do for when when they're working right. So here's my diatribe about that. The term hobby farm is used many times to kind of discredit like. Oh those are. Those are the small farms that somebody's farming as a hobby doesn't really matter if they make an income and it's it's actually quite an insulting term because most of the people who are in that category of farming our farming their butts off. They're working you know. Sixty seventy eighty hour weeks in the summer. That's not that's not a hobby and spending tons of money. What what is really interesting. Is that a lot of people who are doing row crops which are supposed to be the farms that are making money the conventional add. Those people are the people who typically have off-farm jobs that are supporting the farm. So they're not. Just the ninety percent of farms now have off-farm income that supports not only the family but the farm itself. It's paying for the actual farm. So i think that the distinctions here between you know what type of farm is it not whole conversation about. Oh those are too small to make any money. They're they are not that helpful in us thinking about the farm system because who where is where is where do we draw the line and say okay. This is a farm that then is a real farm. That's making money is it. Is it a farm that grows corn and soybean that nobody can eat. Is that considered an actual farm. That's doing great service to our society. You know that we're going to consider. Is the real thing it just it becomes. It becomes a conversation that i find is not that hopeful There are there are thresholds of income like the usda shows that if you net over three hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. That's when farms ten to stop needing off-farm income as much But but again that that brings in the whole question of how much of that income is then. Subsidize payment subsidy payments Because those largest firms we all know are bringing in huge subsidies as well so if those can't kind of be self sustaining either and not need the government dole to be surviving than what is the profitable farm. I don't know will. That's the big question and i think that when you talk about the other sources of funding when we've just been going through covert payments to farmers on the covert payments. I think i read. It was close to thirty percent of the total revenue was coming from something related to Kovin related payments a couple. Several billion dollars to two farms. Well i shouldn't start throwing numbers around but the different kinds of agriculture. That was getting some of these kobe funds. And then the two other areas that you discovered when you move there that you didn't know too much about before you end up having this the crop insurance which is kind of a subsidy arrangement That people can so-called quote insure certain row crops a basically a works out very much like a subsidy. but there's another form to. That's the conservation reserve program. And i think in your hilly area if i'm not mistaken you're pointing out that. That's a much greater amount in some of those counties than just the subsidies that actually pay the farmers to leave the land idle. Yeah so that that is again..

"We just got a buck a few weeks ago and so we will have many more goats come the spring and you have any green that you're producing we do not. We have hay ground in pastures so we took out all of the row crop. That was here. The john's dad was doing and we planted it all in pasture. There is a small section that his dad's still runs out for some extra income That we have gotten with the one family that raises organic green in the area of they are currently conventionally growing But we're hoping that it picks up so that we can have them doing organic grains on the farm. What have we learned about the economics of farming You had some statistics. I know in your in your book about what farm incomes are in the. I'm sure a lot of people be fairly surprised of how low those average incomes are but which are read on this as a way to make a living. Well the statistics. You're talking about actually updated version so in the book i was using twenty nineteen statistics that twenty twenty. Statistics are a drum roll. Please you know The median income for the two million farms in this in this country so half of them made less than a negative twelve hundred and forty eight.

"A pheasant. Hunter not a professional pheasant hunter. But i do enjoy pheasant hunting. I was actually pheasant hunting in south dakota last week. My goodness just feels a lot longer than that. And when i was in south dakota pheasant. Hunting and anyone who pheasant hunts knows this. There's a strategy called flushing where us dogs. I grew up with a german short haired pointer and you would send the dogs out in the fields and they'll work the fields they'll find the pheasant and they will provoke the pheasant to then leave the field fly in the air and then bang. You have a chance to shoot. The pheasant flushing out requires not just the identification but the provoking of the pheasant out of the field and up into the air. Now for those of you that know that shot pheasants you then call hens and roosters there some farms where if it flies at dies but hopefully you're not shooting hands and if it's a rooster hopefully you will shoot. Pheasant actually tastes pretty good in a soup but the strategy of flushing. Is this idea that you need to not just find the pheasant. You need to provoke it. Identify it spotted and then bang. You could take it out this very same strategy of flushing out. The pheasants is happening. Metaphorically of course in how joe biden is handling the federal vaccine mandate in the military. Joe biden wants to have people that are conservative.

It's the exact same ballots that we saw in that state farm arena video that went viral of people scanning and ballots that they pulled out from underneath that people at one o'clock in the morning after observers were sent home well. Those ballots are the ones in question in this lawsuit and a judge so far have actually already unsealed then and what the the plaintiffs were given where the digital ballot images so every time a ballot is scanned in the voting machine Creates a digital and that is stored so they had access to those unfortunately in the resolution on images such poor quality that the forensic expert asked for a higher resolution and so where this case was a couple months ago was the judge had actually ordered that the town officials had to rescan those ballots at a higher resolution and hand them the images because georgia's secretary of state fouls degrees in his lawsuit claiming that it's anybody touch those ballots. It'd be felony. Charlie almost to try to like stop the audit from going forward and so this judges like all right.

But i also don't make money a like a waiter waiting tables. I looked at my tax returns last night. I was curious. The last full year that i lived in new york as a fulltime new york resident city state federal taxes forty eight point five percent. I gave almost half of my income back to the government. Is that not my fair share. Since i moved to florida. It's better last year. And i remember last year. I was in florida almost the whole year. Because of the pandemic almost forty percent taxes came to thirty eight percent. Is that my fair share. How much is my fair share. How much is the fair share of a somebody who owns a farm and makes four five six eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Somebody who owns a restaurant. Somebody has an insurance agency. Somebody has a small business. Somebody who's a lawyer doctor. A pilot into whatever you do for a living. What is the fair. Share biden keeps repeating it like rainman waiting for judge.

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. For the last month or two, we've been hearing about people who want to avoid COVID-19 who want to help minimize the symptoms rather than getting the COVID-19 vaccine have been using what's called the horse de warmer Ivermectin. So I was curious to see where this all started. And of course, you start digging through the Internet and Fox News has helped promote Ivermectin to people. But where it really started with a couple of small studies that were posted online, one of them was an Egyptian study, and the other not really talked about, but what they found out was number one in some of these studies, the number of people that were tested on was too small a sample, and the other one when you started digging into the research, it found the dose that worked and their tests could actually be deathly to most people. I don't understand why people are looking for reasons not to take the vaccine. But we'll take something you get from farm and fleet or a farm store or veterinarian. It doesn't make sense to me. We realize that humans and animals are different. But why we're so anti vaccine is so strange when you take something that's never been tested on people.

We can put whatever we wanted when you stack this. Farm bagh onto a farmer's market and an online store becomes a great way to absorb surplus. Here's what we've sold online. Here's what we're taking to. The farmers market their surplus. Let's put it in the bags to same product. It's not seconds. it's just another way to move it. It's another option to give to customers in maybe appeal to a different customer base. If this sounds like something you might be interested. Checkout what raise doing rose creek farm store dot com look at the seasonal farm bags a couple sizes a couple different types like just a micro green bag. But i love the idea of this. I think it's a great add on to any farm. And if you're already selling online if you're already doing deliveries or if you're already doing on farm pickup i don't think it adds a lot of extra work to what you're already doing while at the same time it gives you something else to sell. It appeals to a different customer base. And it may be absorbed some of the surplus product that you would normally not have an outlet for the seasonal farm bagh loved. The idea of it future podcasts. All about that coming out in the fall and just a reminder again. I'm working on a book. It's about selling vegetables online.

"Look at what he's doing and may be implemented on your arm. I think it's a great idea. The idea behind a seasonal farm bagh is this like an optional. Csi you sign up for it. We'll bill your card every week. You as the customer and us as the farm. Have the option to pause the service at any time. You don't wanna bag this week pause. We don't have enough vegetables to put in the bag this week. We can posit. We're not gonna charge you because we didn't deliver. We're not going to prepare food for you. We're just pausing it. There's no money exchanged and it continues like this throughout the season. The bag itself. You decide what goes into it. You decide how it structured does not the inherent. Promise that this is. What's going to be in the bags. We're going to give you this much off. You're not promising. Exactly what's going to be in the bag your promising a value to the bag so your goal might be to put kale on there. But if you don't have enough kale you can put collards in there. And it's fair game. His that's how the model is set up. It rose creek farm. Ray has multiple types of these seasonal bags. One of them is called the seasonal farm bagh. It's thirty dollars. And he describes it as a produce bag that changes with the seasons. These contents are subject to possibly change. The list is not guaranteed but rather an estimate of what produce will be in the bag. Each wiki updates it for example right now in the bag you'll get a carrot bunch to radish bunches. Mike green salad red tomatoes. Swiss chard yellow onions. Raw made head collared bunch and tender okra at this is the customers thing. They don't do anything they let their subscription run and they come pick it up on the farm or they can pay a fee for delivery. If it's not their thing they can pause it. If some crazy weather happens it rose creek farm. They can pause it as farmers raise. Done some really interesting stuff here. Like.

"Or something else that you're doing that unique about selling vegetables online or in person. Email me diego at paper. Pot doc cohen and you can help create this book. I've been doing a lot of interviews for the book. And one of the recent interviews was with ray tyler of rose creek farms. And they'll be a full podcast up later this year on this subject but i wanted to cover it here because i loved the idea of what ray his doing at his farm when you think about a traditional farm and some the options that you have the cell produce would you have well we can set up an online store we can wholesale we can do a csi or we can go to farmers markets. Csa's are a very popular model in one reason. People love them is because they're guaranteed sales and it makes planning for the year relatively easy what i mean by that. Well if i know. This is what. I'm gonna put into my csi essay. I just lay out a crop plan. Obviously the crops. The pass nature has to go along with the plan but it's different than just trying to cater to customer demands each and every week when you don't know what they're gonna want or how much of it they're gonna want if you have a say with one hundred people in it. You're going to create a box each week. You need to grow that much stuff if you're just selling it market all week or selling online. There's going to be some ebb and flow so. Csa's ken in one way. Make life a little bit easier in terms of planning but they also had a lot of stress especially for newer. Farmers won't now. I actually have to deliver on this for the next twenty straight weeks for some people. That's a lot of pressure in some climates that makes things challenging one thing. Ray did to try and make a hybrid. Csi model as create something called a seasonal farm bag. And you can check out these seasonal farm bags by going to rose creek. Farm store dot com. You can.

I would have stayed in the city and and still be in my cubicle. Can can you think back to one of those days. That might have sent you there.

Let's get together by poll the rocks out but this was so bad. We don't use it anymore. It's a raspberry is on it. I mean it was bat that first year with the weeds.

You said you barely made enough money there to survive along the way but things have changed a lot over the last six years came a long way since those early struggles last year you did you know mid three hundred thousand dollars in gross revenue off the farm. Where do you think you are in terms of. What's possible. Do you think a lot more as possible in terms of the land-based even with scaling back. Definitely i mean we've already sat down and figured it out. You know we so confident we can get out familiar <hes> in with less land and proximal enough. That's really our next goal is to get to the half million number. <hes> you know things. Only you get better.

What's the idea behind that just to show people what you've done so they can take some of it home and start implementing some of those practices to try and make their operation better. Yeah you know i i think in farming stories about people not being able to make all of it or we're not making enough money and you know we have a lot assistance here that i think should help farmers be able to increase their profitability ability on a small farm and i think it's important that we have a lot of not just small farms with quonsett rise. It is the more we're striving driving. The more technology is directed towards small farms and we just all get better so we're gonna do the course and now i'm gonna try to cover but i feel is on our fun.

They're already standardize too that we're that's what we're stuck with. If you're starting out and you're really you know you gotta whole shops that up and you're good at they cannot the tools and rollers and rakes and you're gonna make a thirty six inch that which i think is <hes> a decent size or maybe like a smaller bad <hes> if more comfortable than sure let me know how it works out right and we can all benefit off it but right now. I wouldn't want to change it. Not only are the tools dialed to that size the stuff that repurchased harvest <hes> you know set fit fit perfectly in the past and the size to sit on the bad. <hes> you know how we you know roll roll out the grid. I'm all for that size so we're pretty in it. We're certainly next east and that is fast but if tools weren't an issue you'd go wider michael a little wider. I try it. I wouldn't switch the whole farmer. I thought i i would try it. I would definitely look if if i could maximize <hes> growing area as opposed to <hes> walking area you know you run into problems. You know houses <hes> thirty feet wide so they rose. You know maybe sixty into like say if we should seven rose but i would definitely you know you could always take a few rows on your farm and see what works better what's worked well for you for a pathway with like in the field where you're not constrained by who pows dimensions offers of fourteen inches and who is or they're all worked for. I have seen twelve inch. I think it's a little narrow chat. We couldn't find any harvest toast that were twelve inch <hes> so fourteen seemed like a nice. Take now <hes> and we don't do any raised ed <hes> because that you're going to need more space for you automatically quing me like another thirty percent stake unused. Just have the same amount of growing we don't do. I love the idea of you. Just standardizing this stuff on your farm. I love the idea of going to the no till because i think it's an interesting way that a lot of this industry is slowly kind of moving towards. I mean not everybody but i'm starting to hear more and more stories of people do this because of many advantages which you've talked about and it's good good to hear it working on a system like yours. That's decent size doing a lot of production big numbers on it and you're finding life easier without without the tiller in this standardize bed system. That's not raised. Nothing changes in it and that works for you yeah. You're sorta surprised if not for common because it seemed like such an easy decision us we didn't know until i don't think i i i don't know i haven't thought as far as i know it's a continuous like anything else. Everybody has a different definition but getting rid of that not just so easy and so it is surprising that it's not more common because if you see this is incredibly common. There's so many new <hes> farms everyday is because new farm and that it's it is strange that more evidence kind of shows in that approach of wrong but i think maybe because it is gone well..

We do have one small tunnel that we have leftover from at the beginning and and that really just has some huge loving stuff in it but other than that after all thirty feet wide which is the same with is all of our sections actions in this field so everything's standard is all the same size and have the same number rose we gone back and instead of adding new tunnels. We upgraded yelled at 'cause. I always feel like it better to have one nice tunnels and i'd much rather have one beautiful aw maintenance free tunnel than ten.

I think you know we lost parts of sounds like you know at least five thousand officer you know on the wrong side fifteen hundred hundred eighteen hundred bucks. You know we ordered them not that you know they've they've never failed so it's it's about managing risk and i want to get all that risk out of the farm. You know there's just no way we would be able to do the production that we do yeah. I was assigning people to roll up now now the size of a house you know it's just what if possible i don't want them to well. It's like that's better for technology to take care of not somebody to remember to do or somebody to waste their time doing and you can't do this all at once. You have to grow slowly knowing how you've evolved your system. What are your thoughts on this. Would you think about the standardized thirty inch bed. Have you looked at that is being optimum. I mean it set is the industry three standard. That's how a lot of equipment size but that's just a random number for the most part and if it works in your system it works if it doesn't it doesn't have have you looked at the width of a thirty inch bed and said this is the best possible with yeah. I think it'd be wider <hes> you're. You're not earning any money on the past you know the major problem is tools are already set. You know that that's the west and one thing. I don't want to do on my farm. <hes> as you know what i call blow in your life bulbs. You know if i could buy off the shelf. Also i'm gonna buy it off the show.

Is you do the hard work on the front end. You get this in place once. The rocks are gone. They're gone. They're never coming back back so it pays off in the very long term you know knowing what you know now and i i understand. The answer is going to be contextual because there's money involved in. Some of these inputs puts but if you had the money. Do you think it'd be worthwhile if you did it over to just get these beds primed impract- is good as you could on day one right away in the first year so then it could just be run as fast as you. Can you know using the beds versus kind of piecemeal as you go yeah yeah and it's it's money but it's also time. I don't know there's any any way to spend money to get rocks. It's really time consuming so starting. Small is a good idea. You know it's better to have you know half nature really nice desk than acre and a half a problem but it's hard to say you know if i had the money which i did what i would have done <hes> those early years because you know i think so much of what happened in that first year second. Yes designed designed what we have now and i think it would have. I don't think i would have had anything to us to design the system. I have you you know. Let's say you know. I interned on a farm for five years. You know maybe i would've went in and started it with <hes> a bigger investment but a completely different and that'd be too bad 'cause i liked the systems we have but they are based on that early experience you know of really he's not knowing. I wouldn't recommend going into farming not knowing anything but it's really what helped design the systems we have. I mean and i like that point of starting small. I think that's really smart because this is something i think people in many businesses struggle with its. You're trying to grow the business business to cash flow growing the business but to do that. You also need a lot of behind the scenes infrastructure to do that that in that takes up time which takes time away from production and sales those types of things so if you can start on a smaller area it makes that more manageable well given the time that you have versus like you said spreading it out over a big area now. You're trying to do a lot of both on a big area in with one or two people. You're just not gonna have the time to do that. Effectively and that just frustrating yeah you know you know 'cause infrastructure infrastructure and they have to match production production you know so if there till five acres and growing and suddenly there's going to be the shoes bottleneck your washing station. Even if it's just it's tough in the middle of the seal <hes> you know we started out with washing them in our think at home.

"I love it. You know filter a lot so i can have filters you know in easy to he. Grab areas all throughout the farm is chief. You know you can't do that with the someone's gonna fly by five. You can do that with you know. It's still certain this it grab it and you're giving up the b._c._s. This is something i think a lot of people feel like they need on. A farm or garden is the need to tell and there's a lot of reasons why people feel that need to create a seedbed to loosen up the soil to area to turn in compost those types of things things. Did you have any of those worries before you gave up the b._c._s. reword. You'd miss something by giving up or was it just an easy decision to say. I hated so much. I don't want it. Yeah and i don't want to hate it that much i do. It's a great tool and we still have and there are places. I do use it. You know not necessarily in the field but you know just for digging a trench <hes> but yeah because we were a little headline news. We didn't really really know what was going on we had we don't know hurt anybody who wasn't using one you know we do elliot coleman used it and and you said when he turned over a bad so i was worried but i kind of knew i wanted to get rid of it and whatever problems arose rose by not having that i've tried to fish and one of those things is you have to have your soil nice. You know you have to get the texture under correct <hes> so that you don't have to tell so we worked very hard on getting this texture right all the stones out so that it would be fluffy and nice without having to showa have that ability to do it on such a small farm if you have ten knickers i. I'm not sure it's possible you know but i can go out there and say you know there's just these dead right here. You know i could use a little bit of walk. Claim is a little bit of feed every compost and i can put it out but i i don't know what you can do that. Ten acres so we just worked bed bad by that and they <hes> work without tiller so even though he's stopped telling we still had work to do due to make sure that that soil would still continue to produce well without the d._c. Yeah but there are other benefits just getting heavy pretty see that's the way i didn't wanna bring up. I didn't wanna do i. Ah when you kill you also have to add more new chance he says it to the soil is gonna break down a lot faster. <hes> <hes> have to move things out of the field. You have to draw out your rose again which is very time consuming <hes> especially if you want things high if you want tight has been straight <hes> you'd have to redraw those again every time you tell and all of that time spent not telling the you know the results of filling by adding fertilizer weeds we've drawn out against save all that time to how is the soil changed over the course of the last last five years between going no till and then really trying to observe it in that no till system in amending it accordingly whether that's adding the clay pete. What have you you well. The the soil that we started out with is what's called bangkalan wearing <hes> this river valley where the river has blue. Do you know over the last hundreds or thousands of years it just keeps moving and so you got you know small layer of it's still and then under that is just riverstone you know big ones small lawn sorts basically just ban and and so there's been a significant difference is that all this stone some places still is actually get down to they'd be like twelve inches which is nice <hes> so it gets stone but some places only a couple of agents have to solve all doled out and then <hes> pulling sustained from.

"And try doing through each little thing. Is we have purchased because you know we couldn't just improve the overall farm so it was i think wants to tackle the weeds and and you know there wasn't a solution you always solution we can come up with this guy on our hands and then day after day after day getting every are- route and every tiny little weed everything gone and then once we got there we said well what's the best way they should if this doesn't come and that's why we design cultivation system was still see betting and it was just attacking every little piece that we're just hard anything that was that we were repeating that we didn't need to repeat you know. He wants to make a permanent solution into something <hes> like. They're laying out drip like this. This is ridiculous well. Why would we be laying out drip when we can just have a permanent system so and so bought a whole bunch of different sprinklers tests them and figure out what was going to be the best system <hes> went broke putting in a well <hes> and those you know so he sacrificed both in really hard work and then sacrifice and spending endings and bunny you know there's no way we could survive with having that water so we needed something else and those improvements they just were eight and then on major improvements they just start now the gas acid just so so site everything's starting to work and they just keep focusing on improving and improving and improve it because it it just becomes so much more enjoyable and enjoyable but it took you know years. It was <hes> <hes> you know immediate that second year but only improvements major improvements little major events all the way up until today right we still consider what improvements can we make where the hard work that people really hate to do. And how can we get rid of that in doing doing that with the no till. How big of an effect did you see from year one year two by giving up the b._c. assing going true no till when i stop stop using the b._c._s. and i think it was for me in my part of the farm like i don't do a lot of harvesting anymore war and reading but in my part of the fun that was the greatest efficiency improvement regretting that thing feels farming really enjoyable and i may have come to hate to dc s from the first years selling instilling the film and so but i loved that everything is permanently placed beds a permanent i can easily turn over small affection and have it <hes> requested or received quickly. I like that. I don't drag my b._c._s. into the tunnels us. I can turn over beds winter. It's you know but for me. It's been the greatest efficiency through just for what my job is on the phone..

"And the cabinet didn't have land so we lease land we initially you know look around every yourselves in some mortgage kroger. Do you have any money and there was some land a few hundred yards down the road from the cabin. That was just gorgeous. It's perfect. It was really our ideal spot. We saw fast what we should be looking for and then some circumstances happening that maybe that property it would be available for lease and so we presented a plan to the owner of that property. They don't live there. They live across the country on tree <hes> and they have a lot of property and so we thought they might do rent. The plan was a bunch of ball. We didn't know and so we wrote it and you know like we knew what we were doing and had a meeting with them and they decided to leave the property start enter ganic farm. You know what's he signed the lease that we had to figure out what you're actually going to do this. We had no idea we had never farmed or the business. It were software the land before we knew move from the city to the homestead. I think you did what a lot of people do. They say. Let's change our situation asian. Let's live cheaply. Let's have some animals here to provide food and maybe we'll sell some stuff along the way was that the really the plan at the beginning. Even they said there was no plan was just will live minimally if we can sell some things off the homestead great but there wasn't a formal business built into that transition because i think that's what a lot of people wanna do and then they kinda walk in your shoes do that and then they realize well. This might actually work in the long term here yeah we. We didn't really have a plan but it was really just live minimally. We're in the country. It's not gonna be as expensive. The cabin we see. The tiny little little cabinet was paid off so let's just see how that works but quickly to realize that you know win your so diverse. You know you have chicken some peas vegetables. You know it costs more than tax leases. Go to the grocery store and i wasn't going to go to the grocery store not when you you you you've made this plan that you're gonna homestead and you gotta do it and you can live off the land you know we wanted to figure out a way which continues to do that and they can visit so it wasn't long <noise>. Oh you know maybe it was a few months when we really figured out that it wasn't going to work that way and a lot of that they had to do with the property and it also wasn't agricultural admitted that initial plan to lease at land and you said that plan plan was a bunch of bull <unk> looking at your systems now you're pretty dialed in in your very systematized where you were then i mean what was your view of how this would actually play out on the land or how this would be executed jerry through a really wide nat which was a big mistake but we just did it knowing that are and we didn't really know what you would enjoy..

That's all in with you on this journey and supporting you injustice vested in it is you are familiar with integral. I mean we couldn't have done donald without case. It was just too hard and not not needing manpower but you have to. You know someone to tell you. Hey you know it's gonna work out you know when they are telling from sunup sundown reading for seven days a week and you know maybe harvesting only thirty minutes 'cause you production is so low. You need that some support. You know whether it's wife or family or you know maybe social media something but i think you know being all alone it would have been. I wouldn't have done it. I would have stayed in the city and still be cubicle. Can you think back to one of those days. That might have sent you there.
