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.

Keeping Ag Real – Bayer & Monsanto, European food & agriculture


Kristin Reese, aka Local Farm Mom, has been my companion on a couple of recent adventures. In this episode, we share our experience exploring Europe’s food and agriculture, while also attending Bayer’s Future of Farming event – the first event since the acquisition of Monsanto.

Our journey through Switzerland taught us the importance of slowing down in life. In Germany we learn there are no speed limits & the Netherlands provided a one-of-a-kind event involving Dutch Cooking.

Take a listen to learn more.

Special thanks to Bayer for inviting Kristin and I to the Future of Farming event.
