What the Farm Podcast – Dr. Daniel P. Beckmann wants food local

Foodshed.io is an amazing idea that hooks local farmers up with businesses like restaurants and grocery stores. When foodshed.io is up and running in your area an app will take all the guess work out of logistics like coordinating a refrigerated truck that might be already passing by your farm that day.

This also allows grocery stores to offer fresher more local produce at a reasonable price.

What The Farm Podcast – Andrew Carter growing mushrooms

Andrew Carter started a company called Smallhold and is changing the way consumers look at buying mushrooms. Now, in grocery stores and restaurants around the Bronx, New York, you can walk in and see his self- contained growing units that he calls “small farms.” The idea is that stores and restaurants can grow their own mushrooms right on site. It is catching the consumers attention and cutting down on packaging and transportation/shipping costs. Andrew says this is just the beginning, that his growing concept can be used for other produce and hopes to expand across the country. Check out his website at www.Smallhold.com
