Description

Blind Hog and Acorn sit on the porch and record "en plein air" with the new shotgun/cardioid mic on the smartphone.  Surprise! It worked out quite well.  Even recorded in stereo!

Bullets from the episode on "helpful hints for starting a farm":

  • start as debt free as you can
  • look into apprentice and internship opportunities
  • read some Joel Salatin, and even the old Scott and Helen Nearing books
  • fencing will and should always be a number one priority
  • investigate different animals, breeds, as well as breeders
  • you do not buy breeding stock at the sale barn/auction house- that is where you take your problems
  • safety equipment for animal handling is cheaper in the long run than a trip to the emergency room
  • travel around the area you are thinking about farming, look at places- LOTS of places
  • consider your (wholesale/retail) market opportunities
  • building codes or property restrictions? Better fine out now than later!
