How to Balance the Pace of Progress with Reality – Grassfed Life (GFL72)

In today’s episode Darby and I take a look at the future and the past.

Where is he headed with the farm, and what’s the best way to get there?

Also we take a look at where’s he is currently at with the farm, and was the way he got here, the best way.

We cover topics such as farm succession – what happens to your farm when you are gone, balancing ideology with reality, and the cost of hiring employees versus the cost of doing it alone.

There are no right answers in this one, it’s all about trade offs.

I hope you enjoy it and I hope it gets you thinking.
