Program Title: Fit to Eat for June 2, 2022
Description: In my experience, there are certain places that have a special aura – a powerful presence. Maybe a small brook with a few delightful riffle sequences. Or a forest coming to life on an early spring morning. Or a warm barn full of animals on a cold winter day, with the sound of the sheep and cattle contentedly munching on hay and chewing on cuds. That is the background soundtrack for today’s show.
This week on "Fit to Eat" we head for the delightful backroads of Cormack to visit with Crystal and Doug Parsons of D&D Farm. We learn about a breed of sheep with an expressive and genuine curiosity, the "normal" schedule of lambing month, the amazing skills you can develop through YouTube these days, how to set up an abattoir in your spare time and what it takes to be a farmer. We chat in the barn as the sheep go about their business. Join me. There aren't any chairs, but you can lean on the gate like the rest of us.
