Part 67 - John & Molly from The Biggest Little Farm on Feeding the World with Regenerative Practices
Hello there beautiful people, I’m just getting back from an extraordinary weekend at the Metabolic Health Summit. I’d highly recommend it next year and I believe they have some super discounted tickets on sale now. I don’t know how much it costs, but it’s worth it! It’s an entire weekend of hanging around all the top researchers and doctors in this space and not only getting to see their latest research in the presentations, but getting to talk to them about it in person. Everyone is walking around and available to talk to - it’s so cool. And of course all the attendees are awesome as well.
I got 7 more interviews for Food Lies and I guess the 2nd film that will no doubt be made. I also did some really cool panel discussions that will go to YouTube. The first one was with crowd-favorite Dr. Ben Bikman, and 2 of my new best pals the lovely Dr. Jaime Seeman and Dr. Aseem Malhotra the renowned British cardiologist. The 2nd panel was with 2-time world champion rower and PhD Brianna Stubbs, 2-time world record holding ultra runner Zach Bitter, and 2-time hanging out with Brian nutrition, metabolism, and exercise physiology expert, Mike Mutzel. These will be out on YouTube soon and maybe as a podcast as well. So many great connections and fun things in the works, I can’t begin to name them all.
So on to the guests today. John and Molly are an amazing couple that own Apricot Lane Farm which is just north of Los Angeles. They spent the last 8 years creating a thriving regenerative certified organic farm growing many kinds of animals and countless fruit, vegetable, and cover crops. They documented this journey for most of the 8 years and made an award winning film called The Biggest Little Farm. You can watch it on iTunes, Amazon, or Hulu and I suggest you do this immediately. Maybe even before listening on any further. I won’t spoil any of the story and leave it for them to highlight in this podcast or for you to watch in the film.
Before we start I’ll just mention a few other things. If you're new to this podcast I’d start at episode 1. It’s best to experience the whole journey and soak up the valuable information from each hand-picked guest. You also should know about http://NoseToTail.org where we deliver grass finished, sustainably raised beef, buffalo, lamb as well as our one-of-a-kind high omega 3 pork and chicken. This is special stuff that is not only beyond organic and humanely raised, but is fed a special diet so that the meat has an extremely high omega 3 to omega 6 ratio. It’s in high demand so we can only sell the bacon 1 package at a time. Our other signature product is the primal ground beef with liver, heart, kidney, and spleen mixed. Very tasty stuff. I’ve seen and heard of so many kids chowing down on this stuff and enjoying it immensely. They don’t mind the organ taste at all and I think have an intuitive sense for the superior nutrition it provides.
That’s my company so you can get your meat there and support me (in a small way) and our ranch in Texas. You can also support the Food Lies film on http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-post by clicking through http://FoodLies.org - we still are taking preorders and have the Eat Meat shirts there. We are in the last steps of getting the film finished but still need your help.

Thanks so much everyone, it wouldn't be possible without you. Please enjoy the really insightful and beautiful words of John & Molly Chester.
