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

This week I talk with two young entrepreneurs who are working in the area of culinary tourism. Rebecca Brushett and Ian Stone operate tours in the Gros Morne National Park region, celebrating local food and local culinary skills. While we talk about food and using it to share a local culture, we are also talking about how local food can...
Connections between horticulture and agriculture
05 May, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time on "Fit to Eat" we dance around the question of whether horticulture and agriculture are the very same thing... or maybe they were separated at birth? What is their connection, in our province? How is the increased interest in food security among consumers being felt in the horticultural industry? And what can the two sectors learn from each...

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

This time on "Fit to Eat" we are back in Iceland, to visit a greenhouse and to talk to a food researcher. We meet Anna, at the end of a majestic fjord, in her geothermally-heated greenhouse, and hear her story of how she and her husband ended up as farmers.

23 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

On this episode, we explore the close relationship between food and community, and how they often rely upon the contributions of the other.

Agritourism in the Dairy industry in Iceland
09 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we visit two agri-tourism operations in Iceland. Both of them are dairies that also have rooms for farm vacation stays, as well as restaurants. And the beauty is that you can eat your lunch, or lick your ice cream cone, while you watch the cattle being milked! We feature Vogafjós and Efstidalur, speaking with Olof Hallgrimsdottir and Solvi...
How Spite Can Feed Us All
02 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we chat with James Grace, gardener extraordinaire, chef of note, teacher, and deep thinker on all things related to rural Newfoundland and Labrador. I ask him about where he thinks we are heading as a province, and he explains why "spite" is such a fine source of inspiration for growing food. And all from...

26 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For this show, we head back to Labrador to pay a visit to Des Sellars, owner and operator of Nature's Best Farm. We chat about the great promise of agriculture in the sandy loam and rock-free soil of Central Labrador, as well as the challenges of farming a long way from the infrastructure that is needed. I also drop in...
At the Wharf with Kimberly Orren
20 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time out, we look to the sea for food. I visit with Kimberly Orren of Fishing for Success (and other organizations). We meet up on a wharf in Petty Harbour and chat about giving youth an opportunity to "catch" the passion for fishing, about addressing the gender imbalances in the fishery, about opening up opportunities for self-provisioning with marine...
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
07 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
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

This week on Fit to Eat we head to one of the enclave communities of the majestic Gros Morne National Park - Norris Point.

"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

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,...

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.
