At the Greenhouse with Knutur
16 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For this show, we head to Iceland to visit a magical place, but it is almost the very opposite of the representations of magical places on the "Game of Thrones." This is a place of calm, of refuge, of the pungent smell of tomatoes. It is called Friðheimar, and is a greenhouse, restaurant and horse stables. I talk to owner...
At the Gardens with Todd Boland

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on Fit to Eat I chat with Todd Boland, author, radio personality and Research Horticulturist at the MUN Botanical Garden -- and a self-confessed gardening aficionado (or "fanatic," depending on your perspective). We talk about the challenges of growing plants in NL, some of the ways to work WITH nature to succeed, and changes that are taking place in...
Sheep Farming in Iceland
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat, we head to an area of the world that has many similarities to our own, but enough differences to make it intriguing - Iceland. I visit with a sheep farmer (and current Vice-Speaker of the Northeast Constituency of the Icelandic Parliament), þórarinn Ingi Pétursson. We talk about the challenges of marketing sheep in a...
A chat with the only commercial cheesemaker in NL
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

"Blessed are the Cheese-makers." This week on Fit to Eat, we meet up with the only commercial cheese-maker in NL. Yes. That's right. We're a province of about 530,000, and have only one commercial cheese-maker. But don't let that mislead you about the amount of cheese we actually eat! We just send the excess milk to other provinces and they...
Chatting with Farmer Jim Lester
06 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on Fit to Eat we head toward the outer limits... of St. John's... to visit Jim Lester at his farm, just a turnip's throw from a major freeway. We talk about adversity and opportunity, agri-tourism, working with consumers, aquaponics, and building more food production capacity in this province. Oh, and I ask him how he keeps "Farmer Jim" separate...
Growing greens in the shadow of Gros Morne mountain

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat we head to one of the enclave communities of the majestic Gros Morne National Park - Norris Point. We visit with a couple of young farmers who are growing vegetables and herbs and micro-greens and more, with great success. They are providing fresh foods in a region where such pleasures are often in short...
"Back to the Land" with Steve and Lisa
22 Jan, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat we go both backwards and forwards in time. We meet a couple of pioneers who have traded the streets of Vancouver (and St. John's) for the homemade and self-provisioned comforts of a homestead. But by taking this choice, which some see as going "backwards," they have actually been going forwards in time - to...
Meeting with Mervin
12 Jan, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week I visit with Mervin Wiseman, a certified master mariner, a policy lover, a long-time executive member of the NL Federation of Agriculture, and the operator of the largest silver fox farm in the known universe. Or something like that. But we don't really get around to talking about fur very much. We spend too much time chatting about...
Visiting with Nathan Dennis and Melvin Rideout
07 Jan, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Over 60 years ago, the Commission of Government opened up over 12,000 hectares of land for agriculture in the Cormack area of NL. This show, we visit two farmers who are part of the vibrant group of folks who still farm in that area. We spend time with Nathan Dennis, who has free-run eggs, pork, lamb, beef and root crops,...

02 Jan, 2019 | 0:29:59 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we head to the magical village of Ferryland to visit with a couple of folks who grow garlic. A lot of garlic. Vampires beware! They also grow a few other vegetables, and they produce a traditional soil nutrition supplement. We spend the day with Brian and Jane Yager of the Natural Gardener, and we welcome you to join...
At the bee and wildflower preserve with Paul Dinn
19 Dec, 2018 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat we visit a man who is fascinated by the little creatures who are responsible for about a third of what we eat - bees, and other pollinators. We chat with Paul Dinn of Adelaide's Honey about his passion for bees and how he is helping to spread that enthusiasm around to others.
Chatting about Food with Chef Todd Perrin
19 Dec, 2018 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we go deep into Quidi Vidi Village to chat with Todd Perrin, chef at Mallard Cottage, food entrepreneur and keen observer of all things related to food and culture. We chat about getting back to more self-provisioning in this province, the challenges of increasing local food at restaurants, the rise of food porn, and the fact that eating...
Visiting the Cider Maker
05 Dec, 2018 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we head to the world headquarters of the Newfoundland Cider Company, in Clarenville, to speak with Chris Adams. We learn about the patience needed to start an agricultural enterprise in our province, as well as the excitement of consumers to buy local foods - and drinks. In the process, we learn a few things about cider as well.

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today, I visit with Jim Purdy, just outside of Happy Valley, Labrador. We talk about the advantages of farming in Labrador, the demand for local vegetables in the region, the need to increase animal-based farming in that area, and the great bear-frightening potential of a good rooster.

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

If you head out of St. John's, past the airport, and head for the Bell Island ferry, you'll come to Murray Meadows Farm and the Grounds Cafe, on the left. We stopped in and chatted with Evan Murray and Brian Kowalski about learning to grow, the finer points of marketing, and their visions for bringing food from the farm to...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time I visit Three Mile Ridge and talk with Krista Chatman about the challenges of starting to farm, the challenges of starting a community market, and the challenges of working on new initiatives. But it isn't all about challenges. We also talk about the Zen of Weeding.
