Where to Begin With James Howard Kunstler's Many Books?
"To James Howard kunstler. Jim, you were just talking about the long remedy. The long emergency. Now that's your book from 2005. Would that be the primer to read on what we're discussing if somebody is listening and they say, I don't get this. And the 2012 companion, which is called too much magic. Wishful thinking, technology and the fate of the nation. And what does that reference? Well, it's about what the response to the lung emergency is tending to be a kind of techno narcissism. This idea that technology is going to rescue us from this dynamic set of problems and quandaries that we face, the problem we face with our basic primary source energy supply, petroleum, the quandaries we face over the disorders of finance, the quandaries we face with farming and food production, geopolitics, these things are all related with the winding down of the global economy, which was our mode of operation. But you make 40 years. You make it sound inevitable. It is inevitable. And to me, I guess my question is whether when you talk about people acting crazy and you talk about it, a lot of these things to my mind, at least do have answers. And others, I think it's not like we just have to say, okay, everybody's going to be confused about how many sexes there are or whatever. We all know there are two. I mean, most people just know that. But we live in a world where the elites who have the microphones act as though. No, no, no, no, that was ten minutes ago. We all decided it's no longer true. You're not going to have any success with those arguments because those arguments are all a deflection of the greater question, which is how are we going to live in the decades ahead? How are we going to reorganize American life?
Larry Elder Talks About the 'Uncle Tom' Documentaries
"Uncle Tom is all about the struggle of black conservatives throughout America from the time of slavery until right now that people like look at T Washington have always believed in hard work, accountability and becoming excellent. And his argument was that even in the face of racism, if you learn a skill, a job, a trade, as well as or better than somebody else, you will be rewarded because people want the best. They want cheap. They want good quality. They want things that work. When I was a kid, I used to spend summers, my moms ranch. And my mom, mom, farm, rather. My mom told me there was a black man who couldn't read or write, who was the best chimney maker in the south. And the way of determining a good chimney maker is somebody that does not order too many bricks because if you order too many, the guy that's ordering them has to pay for them and to make sure that Jimmy does not smoke. It's not leak. And she said he was always employed by all these white people that wouldn't invite him in for tea, but they'd invite him to their chimney because he was the best. And so there have been many examples of that. We explore that in Uncle Tom one about people that worked hard to learn the skills and learn trade even in the face of tremendous racism and Jim Crow still managed to succeed and to overcome. And then we talk about how this attitude has now been changed by these people like Jesse Jackson and Al sharpton and Patrice colors, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, essentially telling black people that you're victims. Always victims. Eternal victims, if victims of systemic racism, enduring racism, foundational racism, to the point where it's changed the attitude of a lot of black people and the worst work ethic of a lot of black people and more importantly the family structure. With the welfare state, as I said, a million times, we've encouraged women to marry the government and we've encouraged men to abandon their financial and more responsibility. And now we have not a scandal, but a scandal and a crisis, Brandon, 85% of black 8th graders are neither mass nor reading proficient. 85%, that means 85% of black 8th graders are functionally illiterate. And the NAACP just had their annual convention and what are they talking about? Reproductive rights, voting rights, student debt, and police brutality. That's their agenda. And so if long as our so called black leaders are focusing on the wrong thing, the solution will forever be elusive.
Some Things You Probably Didn't Know About Harry Truman
"In this speech, I want to talk about it was given on January 15th, 1953, a lot to see, but it also goes into a lot of what basically service is, is from the people like Harry Truman, who believed that their service in life was from a calling of their upbringing. He was the 33rd president who was born in 1884 and lived most of his life as I said outside independence, Missouri. Most people don't realize that he actually early in his life as he was trying to win best, his eventual wife, that he wanted to make something himself. He actually was a farmer, worked on a farm, got jobs, but he opened a haberdashery in Kansas City. So he did men's clothing. The store went okay. It didn't completely pan out. But it was a story of someone who tried in life and succeeded to appoint in business. But that was Harry Truman. This was somebody who was always trying to do more. He also served in World War I, which made a great impact on his thinking, especially as it came later. He also met the pendergrass family during his time in the army which later led him to his public life as a judge and then also which a judge in that time was more of like a county administrator. And ruler, but also he led him then to what became the United States Senate and how he got to Washington D.C.. So a lot just going on there. An interesting couple of side notes not only he had trouble getting into the army. In fact, he couldn't see. He had a very bad eyesight. Outside of his glasses. And the way he got in there is, again, a lot of great individuals in the world adapt and overcome and Harry Truman adapted and overcome. He actually memorized the eye chart. That's how he actually got past his eye exam. So a lot of stuff that went into Harry Truman's life that a lot of people may not know, he was also very accomplished piano player, played piano in The White House, played piano. A lot of places. It was a very much of an icebreaker, a lot of times for Truman. He was also one last thing before we get into this speech itself. He is the last president that we have had that did not have a college degree. And he
Harry Truman: A Simple Man and the 'Accidental President'
"Always thought when I was in Washington and serving in Congress, I always viewed it as an honor, a privilege. It was something that I looked at as a duty. Not just to myself and my family to do the my best I could, but to the people that I represented. Harry Truman was an interesting, interesting individual. This is a man who, again, if you look at it, you would never say, if you took his background, you would never believe that this gentleman would have become president. Much less a senator or anything else. He started off in his life in Missouri. He lived most of his life in independence, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City. Small lived on a farm, very shy, very socially at times if you read biographies about him very socially and awkward. In fact, there's a book. I went to the Truman library. And he actually kept an office in the trim and library up until the time he died in the early 70s. He kept an office and that office is still left the way he left it the day that the last time he was there. And if you look around, you see the simple realities of a man from the Midwest. You see a simple reality of someone who believed that his part in history was important, but that really he wasn't the important part. He viewed what he did is out of a Call of Duty and respect for a country that he loved.

Hilaria Baldwin Takes on Her 'Trolls'
"Variable. What is she? I think she's the most pregnant woman we've ever met, right? She has to be. It's just crazy the way this person lives. Mama's 6, 7th on the way, and we all know we're all suspect about where these babies come from. Does she actually do the birthing herself? It's all some came too close together. It couldn't have been done feasibly. And then she loses all this weight. 18 days later, she's slim and trim doing yoga again. It doesn't look right. It never looked right. And people are people talking. But the other day, she goes on Instagram. Even though she said, I'm taking a long break from Instagram. So she had to go on and you know why? She had to talk about her personal struggles with trolls and then how it affects her personal struggle with trolls. How it affected her. And she said she had some type of story that she wants to help people who are suffering the same plight and then the videos captured she talks about doing research on my women treat other women this way since so many of her followers are experiencing this. I'm sure you know that. There's another world this girl. Everybody's gonna bullies everywhere? No, no, no one's had bullies or no one's got radicalized people chasing them, but you, you, Hillary, you're nuts. But in a message she wrote alongside the video, she said, I share with you here some abuse of comments I get because I've learned that so many of you are suffering in silence from this kind of harassment. These people often get radicalized and online hate farms. I mean, my example make you know that you're not alone and you're always allowed a seat at the table. And this one went on and on. They've got so long and a crazy. I didn't know what to do.
Doug Deep Dives Into Recent Supreme Court Decisions
"When you look at the courts decisions over the years, you either have a group that is called more of the originalist or constitutionalist that believe that the founding document, the constitution, is the banner by which everything else is measured. It's the measuring stick. And if it's in the founding fathers, enumerated rights, they said, this is what the federal government is going to do. And then they have riots at plenty of rights that are interpreted or founded in the constitution that may not be a numerator, but through tradition and through others is Alito and others have said in the abortion decision recently and we've seen it in the writings of Neil Gorsuch, clarence Thomas and others. That are just they're there and they're protected as we go for. Now, they may be brought out of amendments, but they may be in the constitution actual wording yourself. And then you have rises the Tenth Amendment of the constitution says that any rise that are not given to the federal government or named in the constitution are then given to the states or the people. This is where we're seeing the interesting mix right now because you have it now a majority of the court that is constitutionalist or originalist in their intent. They frame everything about what the constitution said or did not say. And then you have the grouping on the court and the political opinion that says, no, the constitution is evolving, that you're supposed to use it as a measuring stick, but the measuring shit can be altered based on cases now and decisions of what's going on as we currently have it. This is what is formed the problem if you would are the crisis of many. And when you get decisions that have been handed out over the last few weeks, such as the Second Amendment decision out of New York, in which clarence Thomas actually declared that, you know, the Second Amendment could not be treated as a lesser right. What happened in the state of New York was is they had a may issue condition on a carry permit or an owner's permit for a gun in New York State. What the reality was that you had to show just calls. Well, the just calls as clarence Thomas and others agreed on the court was the just cause was you have the Second Amendment. The just call says that you can own a firearm for your protection as you can keep that farm and it's not up to the state to keep you from it for arbitrary reasons such as a just calls provision saying, well, do you really need it or not?
Why Are the Chinese Buying Up America's Farm Land?
"I mentioned the story yesterday. I want to reiterate this. The Chinese are buying up farmland all across America. Do you know the Chinese own a 100 million acres? Of farmland? Do you know that? That, according to sources in Texas, the Chinese own dozens of square miles of farmland and they don't allow anyone to come in. So the Chinese Communist Party is buying up farmland all across America because they know that our ability to produce food, the bread basket of the world is one of our strategic advantages. It's something that many countries it's an envy of the world. So what do we do? Well, that's the free market we allow our enemy to come in and buy our farmland that then very well could result in food shortages. The CCP they're malevolent their deceitful, they're sneaky, they're liars. But we just invite them in. So the governor of North Dakota Doug burgum, courted an invited the Chinese Communist Party to go by farmland right next to an Air Force Base. What could possibly be wrong with that? Obviously nothing. Even some Democrats in Washington, D.C., this is too much. Say, so the fu Feng group bought 300 acres of land near Grand Forks North Dakota to set up a milling plant. Air force, the Air Force Base nearby says, quote, passive collections of signals near the Air Force Base, very well could be detected. This includes a grave vulnerability to our Department of Defense installations and is incredibly compromising the U.S. national security.

The Seed and Soil Argument With Historian Bill Federer
"1700s and all of a sudden Britain is in a little bit of trouble and they start to have to tax the colonies, expand more on the seed and soil argument that led us to the culmination of the 1770s. It's interesting so the British, the king of England, went on to become the most powerful king on Planet Earth. If he was a globalist, he was a one world government guy. And so in the middle 1700s, they controlled Bengal and Bengal India, Bengal, India, and they basically took over and said, okay, all this, you know, subsistence farming and stuff you've been doing working to switch it up. We know how to do this. And they change, they change their economy so much that there was a drought and it turned into a famine and 10 million people died in Bengal in the middle to late 1700s. And so the British East India Company has gone bankrupt and so they go to the king say, hey, we want to tax Britain and the people in Britain said no way. And so the king says, okay, well, you can tax the colonies. And it started to escalate and the king wanted to take away our ability to print our own money, take away our ability to appoint judges. So all the judges were appointed by the king and but he didn't realize that, by the way, king George the third went insane. He had porphyria, a blue blood disease. You know, you intermarry the preserve the royal bloodline. Uncle daddy. But anyway, so the king of England was a globalist and America's founders decided they didn't like this global as king telling us what to do. So they broke away and flipped it and made the people the king. So the word citizen is Greek, it means co king, co ruler, co sovereign. So kings have subjects who are subjected to their will, Republicans and democracies have citizens. And so if you're a citizen of America, you are a co ruler, you're a
Biden Blames Gas Station Owners for High Prices at the Pump
"He goes on to, I love this. Cut number two. To the company's running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump. This is a time of war. Global peril, Ukraine, these are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product. Let's stop right there. It's the gas station owner's fault. He's not she's not supposed to make any money. They all company had not supposed to make any money. The price of oil in a worldwide market is driven by the supply, and the demand.

PA Farms 'Crushed' by Record Diesel Prices, Food Shortages Pending
"Having said that if we are going to have to go through this economic suffering that Joe Biden the left and candidly swampy Republicans have hoisted on our backs by spending money we don't have and causing this inflation crisis It would at least be nice to come out the other side smarter for it That's why I'm optimistic about our future Now I've been giving you some of the economic bad news first Part one I just told you that the producer price index is actually higher than the consumer price index meaning what Meaning you haven't even been charged yet for all the price hikes coming because the producers selling you stuff are paying more So it's going to get worse before it gets better Another reason it's going to get worse An article in zero hedge today Where teetering on the edge food shortage worries mount as Pennsylvania farms get crushed by record diesel prices This farmer in this county is quoted as saying I've got a tractor hooked up to my corn plant throughout here but no diesel fuel and I can't afford to get any He was airing his gripes to a legislative affairs specialist for the Pennsylvania farm bureau He also testified we've reached the point to where it's getting very close to being a sinking ship We're teetering on the edge right now Folks and me we're all going to starve to death No it doesn't Does it mean we could be suffering food shortages in the world's wealthiest economy Similar to the baby formula shortage Could It could And we'd be silly not to consider that You think this farmer in Pennsylvania is lying You think he's just making it up You think he's the only one in the country suffering from this diesel fuel price explosion
Expect to Be Frugal at Joey Hudson's Home
"I was with hundreds of people last night. You know, it's funny story about being here in the upstate of South Carolina with my pal Joey Hudson and his wife peg and we're broadcasting from the luxurious Hudson compound, the guest quarters I had fun last night making fun of Joey with the tiny little bar of soap that he left me upstairs in the bathroom and the tiny little roll of toilet paper. It's the smallest roll of toilet paper I've ever seen in the history of toilet paper. I don't know how he does it. Joey is so the nice way to put it is frugal. The more direct way it is to point out that he has the first dollar he ever made. He gets so mad at me for and he's my business manager. So when all the money that I spend goes out the window, he just shakes his head. He gave up trying to talk me out of my stupid extravagant spending habits. I just like to spend, you know? Thank goodness I've got a decent job that makes gives me a good living and I can afford some things that I probably shouldn't be spending money on. And I tried very hard to be as charitable and as giving as I can, but God has been good to me and God is blessed me and so Joey tries to remind me constantly that I should be more frugal. So that's why you should see the little bar of soap. It's like you hold the soap between your index finger and your thumb. And this is the bath, that's your body soap upstairs in the bathroom. Here at the Hudson farms. So to wash your like your left shoulder, that's the end of the bar. You need like 6 bars of soap to cover your body.
Heat Stress Blamed for Thousands of Cattle Deaths in Kansas
"Now, there's a couple of things that confuse me about what's going on in America and how things are being handled. I know you guys have seen or at least heard reports in Kansas how there was reports of 10,000 cattle that passed away due to a heat wave. Now, official reports say there's about 2000 of them that were confirmed because the ranchers are the individuals who had the cattle. It would call them ranchers, that they needed the cows to be disposed of I don't even know what it's called the organization that manages that. They counted at least 2000 cattle who have died, but they believe it's about 10,000. Now, I don't know if there's any ranchers that are listening to my podcast. Anybody that have a farm, it just doesn't seem right that 10,000 cattle would die, almost around the same time. I mean, they're perceiving that it happened overnight that these cattle would die just from a heat wave.

"President of the farmers association Epic times As the world comes out of two years of pandemic lockdowns and restrictions Inflation continues to rise and affect U.S. energy and food prices Family farms that make up the majority of the U.S. food suppliers are having difficulty meeting their operating costs with prices of seeds fertilizer and gas doubling and tripling This is going to get ugly This is going to get bad President of the national black farmers association John Boyd junior is urging the Biden administration to put an emergency loan fund in place to help family farmers with operating costs Otherwise he warns an additional high cost of food that will be food shortages America get ready for the high cost of food and hunker down He told epic TV's fax matter program Family farmers are still the number one producer for corn wheat and soybeans He said we have to do all we can to make sure that farmers get those crops in the ground And if the resources readily available at the time of planning and harvesting Now here's the thing Small and mid side family farms are 88% of U.S. food production It's not a matter of another government program Ladies and gentlemen Biden will not take his hands off the throat of the oil industry I don't care what they say about the oil industry I know they deflect and they divert It's the same oil industry that was producing diesel and regular gasoline and premium gasoline before And an affordable level It's not due to Ukraine and Russia It's not due to any of that We were energy independent
What Should the Vision Be for the New Conservative Movement?
"So what should the vision for the new conservative movement be? Charlie, you said that there's this tension between, you know, what the right should do, should we build new institutions? Should we reform existing one? Should we just wipe the table off? And I think that that's the second part to this. We have this vision for a cohesive agenda on trade immigration foreign policy, all this stuff. But there's a second dimension to it, which is, you know, some people have called it exit versus voice. Should we leave blue states behind and purple states behind and all fleet of Florida, Florida is a nice place to live, or voice, should we fight for the institutions we have in the places that we have them. And my general approach to this question is all of the above. My riff on this is that you build what you need, you reform what you can and you destroy what you must in that order. And so I'm a big fan of a multiplicity of approaches to these questions. And so the thing I'm trying to avoid in general as we're building American moment is encouraging a mindset where we do the same mistake that the right historically made, which is a version of live and let live as a tactical strategy, which is basically just when everything starts to get bad, you leave, because the left is fighting you and better to just escape their wrath. At the end of the day, the left is never stopping. They're never going to leave you alone. There's nowhere you can treat to. No, no sweet potato farm out in the Prairie where they'll leave you alone. They want to come for your kids. You know, Kamala Harris will show up at your door with an injection full hormones for your 7 year old one day. If you don't stay and fight in the political arena. And so we need to build new businesses for red America. We need to take over the federal government when we get power and use it to advance the interests of our voters. And the way we need to try to reform institutions that have gone astray, both inside the conservative movement and
Marilyn Monroe Look-Alike Suzie Kennedy Discusses Free Speech
"We are back with the most famous, the most famous, Marilyn Monroe lookalike comedian actress, just a fun lady to know Susie Kennedy follow her right now on Twitter Suzy. I like the cut of your jib, not simply because you can get into Marilyn's dresses. Oh my he is such a sexist, slap that man behave. But because you're outspoken, you are, you know, you go on these interviews, you did the three three speech podcast that great guy farm podcast, then you want James well. And then we were talking about abortion. We were talking about the Supreme Court ruling. And then James said to you and me, because you're a vow, Chris, you said, you religious people. No, you religion. He called you religion, people, and you stood out for your rights. And also in recent tweet of yours, you said, you stood up for being against those who would like to censor you as a performer or a comedian. So talk about what it means to actually take a stand on these issues as somebody who's so much in the public eye. Well, the thing is, I actually don't think I'm outspoken. What I think I am and people do accuse me of that. I'm just tell what I think, and I think that's really important that we free speech, even if I don't agree with you. So the comment I made about a comedian is that I love the fact that we have Dave Chappelle. I love the fact that we have Ricky Gervais, but I also like the fact that we have nish Kumar, who are pitted against each other. Right. So the political identity doesn't matter, the fact is that they get to say what they want to say. Yes. And do you know what? I'll be honest with you. When people say, oh, you should say whatever you want. Most people do not say things with the intention to hurt or hate. And if you're scared to say anything because straight away, someone's going to be her or think you hate them. That's not true. Jesus loved everybody. But he told the truth.

"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..

"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..

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.

"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.

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.

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.

"Because you know obviously you know a lot of farmers getting older and they're looking for you know new young farmers to come in and take over this land and so there are loans available for people that are looking to get into agriculture. But if felt very much like kind of a catch twenty two because to get the loan to get the farm you needed the experience of running a farm. And i kinda find myself in the spot where it was like. Well don't but. I need the. I need the loan. Second have the farm. So i can get the experience and get from the banking perspective. They're not going to give loans to anybody who you know. Thinks that they have an idea. But that's what. I really liked when we first started talking about your program where it was Giving people that opportunity to actually run a farm without you know having their own lands in that you have opportunities for people to you know even at night you know come in and manage some fields and and get that experience that then potentially you know a couple of years down the road they would be able to go and get a loan to actually get some land For a newbie. Like obviously i'm not very deep into the farming side but it was like. Oh this sounds like a great idea and then you just kinda hit that roadblock that like oh well you know you need to somehow get that experience somewhere in actually be trained on how to do all this stuff before you can make that next step for that opportunity. Yeah i mean absolutely like it's the Is definitely the catch twenty two. How do you get experienced in something especially if you wanna be an owner eager and they go get a loan but then you don't actually have three years of financials which they requires. So that's the exact reason why we started our farm incubator programs so we have a training programs. Seven months of boot camp called the training in california pharma gabby trading program but we knew right from the beginning because we learned from great organizations like elba down in watsonville salinas area that you and many others around the country that have done such incredible job that is one thing to have. The training program is a completely different thing to have land access and not just land access but access to infrastructure access to equipment and at access to technical service access to education access to opportunities resources financial and otherwise that is in. You can train people. That's great but it's only the first step. So that's why when we set out to create our california firm academy from the very beginning we've coupled those things together not the training as well as the farm incubating farm business incubator so they could have access land with all of those other pieces available to them as part of a very low subsidized annual rental rates per acre and including access to our staff..

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. Let's say caterpillar so <hes> and so we've gone back and we is. It's quite an only steel and polycarbonate taking out all the war <hes> the all have spans. They'll have <hes> <hes> automatic role upside automatic then saying <hes> and every time we add one we have kind of a sandra jill that we do and then we try to upgrade the new one to something even better so i new ones are going to be the one we just put up in the fall that <hes> going to be a whole fan jet system with <hes> exhaust and highgrove control <hes> to central genetic studies so they get more and more high and it is worth it when we when we started out we had that small who pass then we grew tomatoes the standard structure you know you go out there and roll it it up by hand you know and it was a warm day cheese really cheap <hes> and and we were going to go buy something you know we have to travel a couple of hours and it was really cloudy and the way you know it's just black cloud. They said you know let's. Let's leave the tomatoes in there that you know it's cold. We weren't gonna roll in off hours relax. The sun came out out cook tomato plant. 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. I'm not gonna go into my barn thought they can saw so. They're already.

"From elsewhere and then kinda starting stand that's why we added a little bit of clay clay percentage out to like anywhere from five to fifteen percent and adding compost and peas and then it's all about the steel you know i think when you've been farming for a while you just pick up a handful of soil and you're like yeah. This is good soil the whole water well. That's gonna hold you like fluffy. You know i you know the worms in it so that's what we're doing is spending a lot of money on that was trying to add to the saudi completely different. You know when people come to the farm. I'll show them. Here's the passed between win. The street looks like it's a standard raw and then the field was hard work but it's one of those things that i see it here it. 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. Oh the first year it was slow you know ed unbelievably well and then we moved to and then we upgraded to a tug in the field you know under a.

"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..

"Two-wheeled tractor with a killer and a plow we'd flaw a tiny little seedling greenhouse and then is <hes> small paths to grow tomatoes and that was all money don on pretty much just ask point so handsome announced and then with no other job really worked on the phone and how we started was we. We just chill tells tells until until it did. It worked out all that great. You know you're not going to get rid of rennie. Li it's chilling you know it turned into kind of a nightmare i g <hes> that's very easy. I don't even have a lotta pictures from the first year. 'cause you're just wherever proud i wish i had more. You know we were learning and we did it. Make a lot of money but we were able to make a profit and get by the first first year two extremely hard work. I think it was only maybe half acre that first year. We hadn't had any system stone shot that out yet it really wasn't until the following year that we throughout the filler and decided added to <hes> to go no till and it wasn't a no till decision. It was a decision based on you know. We kept looking things. They you know. This is hard work. Let's just chuck it out we need to do that. You know this doesn't make sense. I don't like hauling hauling here is. I don't know if you've used one but if they're really heavy it just seemed like a big waste of time and once we got the weeds leads out that was it. We didn't want any we coming back because that first year was so difficult and i knew do we couldn't continue. I guess suffer. It's like that first year. <hes> we had to find find your way and uh between that first year now. There's been so many changes that there's really no. There's nothing to say even use trip to the first year..

"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..

"Here it is another farm five on farm small farm smart in terms of confidence throughout this. You've talked a lot about we. We and you talked about at the beginning saying that you know when things got hard. One of us would support the other. How important is this been have a wife life partner in this. 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.
