  • A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past... Compost still grows grass; chickens still like fly larvae... At Polyface Farms, Joel will “take the guy who can move 5,000 chickens in 60 minutes with nothing more than a hand dolly over the technocrat...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018 

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead. For eight hours a day (tea breaks aside - we were in The Wirral, afterall), I helped the Keenans build their future home, steward their livestock, and even watched their children...

    Starting from Scratch - How Beginning Farmers can Break Ground

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Sep 9, 2018 

    Despite the fact that there is near-guaranteed job security, thanks to booming population growth, many beginning farmers face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to bringing a product to market. In this article, we’re going to cover how young farmers can start from the ground up, even if they don’t come from a family of farmers. Informing this subject is Jason Silverman, the Massachusetts Field Agent of Land For Good, and Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farm. Jason’s experience as a first generation farmer, and as an agent connecting farmers with resources, balances well with Joel’s, who took over the family farm, and has since mentored scores of intern cohorts... By not “getting in over their heads at first, even if it means a backyard garden and a flock of chickens,” beginning farmers can continue to grow their skills and work towards a future of farming...

    Controlling input costs - one of the best returns on investment

    By John Moody

    Published May 2, 2018 

    The importance of controlling your costs One of my favorite stories involves a lady and a farmer. The farmer sold milk right off the farm for about $4. 00 a gallon. The lady would, each week, load up her four or so kids, drive forty five minute each way, and pick up three gallons of milk in return... It didn’t last very long with 200 chickens...

    Benefits of Blockchain Technology in Agriculture Industry

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 21, 2019 

    Application of blockchain technologyThe term blockchain has yielded much attention in many industries in the last 10 years. The emergence of blockchain is due to the lack of trusted system in the market. It has been used in various industries such as finance, logistics, retail, energy, health, education and more. However, the common use of blockchain is found in the finance sector. In short, blockchain is a system linked in a peer-to-peer network maintained across several computers that records transaction made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018 

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in...

    Welcome to Some Small Farm

    By John Moody

    Published Apr 3, 2018 

    Few of my family and friends would have ever expected me to become a farmer. I was that city kid, happy to play video games, hide from the sun, and grow my collection of Lego's and other toys far more than any interest in growing things like food. Life takes you surprising places, though, and 20 years later I found myself on 30+ acres of land, farming my family of seven and enjoying a country life that I never expected to find. I grew up in a blue collar (pipeline construction) family in northeast Ohio... We have moved in and out of a number of different enterprises - laying chickens, beef cattle, berries, and bees - learning and staying flexible while we improved our infrastructure and skills...

    WATT Poultry - ""If you think about it, it's two different things. Caring for them is making sure they've got feed, they've got water, they've got all that stuff. Caring about them is (thinking) 'I wonder what kind of experience they're having,'" Dallas Wynn, senior manager of animal welfare, Tyson Foods said."
