Ontario AgCast – James Whetlor, Cabrito Goat


Chef, author and entrepreneur, James Whetlor founded Cabrito Goat after keeping a few goats to solve a land management problem. Being a successful chef, a few of the goats ended up on the menu. After goat outsold beef the first week (still don’t believe it), James thought perhaps there was a larger market for kid goat meat and it turns out there was. We go deep into the history of why goat meat is considered the poor man’s food and Wendell commits to trying something new.

Ontario AgCast – Jenn Doelman Grain Farmer


Jenn Doelman is a grain farmer in the Ottawa Valley, but corn and soybeans barely crack the top three on the list of her favorite crops. She is canola’s biggest cheerleader, but thinks wheat is pretty cool too. Bringing leadership home to the farm and giving back to the industry.

Ontario AgCast – Colin Davis Apricot Valley Waterfowl


What would possess a hospital IT expert to start raising rare ducks and geese? Apricot Valley Waterfowl is not your typical poultry farm. In fact, one of Colin Davis’ goals is to be the exact opposite of a conventional farm. At the end of the day preservation farming still has to pay the bills to be sustainable.
