Program Title: Fit to Eat for 9 August 2022 Susan Lester
Description: For some folks who live in urban regions, the closest they come to a site of food production can be the farmer’s markets that populate the fringes of many cities. There they can see crops in the ground, watch the goats darting around with each other, pick a ripe strawberry, maybe even marvel at a pumpkin being shot out of a catapult. These markets are little sites of education and wonder - slowly spreading the message of where our food comes from. Today, we head to one such market.
If you live in NL's capital city, the market that may have opened your eyes to food production could have been Lester’s Farm Market, right there on Brookfield Road, where the food-consuming city shades into the food-producing countryside. It was there that I met up with Susan Lester, a 6th generation farmer, early one morning at the beginning of Thanksgiving Week in 2021. This is one of the busiest weeks of the year for a farm market, but she still took the time out to chat. I hope that you have the time to listen.
