I had a fantastic conversation
with Ben Grimes of Dawnbreaker Farms and Dependable Poultry
Processors in Hurdle Mills, NC that I'm eager to share with you.
Ben is a smart farmer who knows and understands his farm, his
processing business, and his numbers, and is thoughtful and wise
about how to use them to pursue his goals.

processed by someone else, stay tuned. If you're someone who raises
and sells ducks, or is interested in raising and selling ducks,
stay tuned. If you're someone who would like to see farmers market
sales go way up, stay tuned. And if you're someone who likes to see
how people are solving problems on their farms, in their context,
with creative solutions that you can learn from, then, as always
A couple of notes: I plan to continue to release episodes at
the beginning of the week each week for a while. I hope to be
dependable in that. second. This is my last "recorded in a Jetta"

grassfed life: Those guys have provided myself and many others I

podcast and courses and mentorship, and they have in many ways
inspired and helped me to create this podcast. They have also
partnered with Ben and I at separate times to create education for
farmers. So I just want to say for myself, that I appreciate that
they have, in many ways, shared their platforms and audiences in
order to help us out and partner with us when they didn't have

He's become a good friend, and someone who's example I look to when
trying to figure out how to make my farm better. It takes a lot of
pieces to make a farm business viable. And smart friends and
examples and camarades are an important one.
