Hey kid... wanna be a farmer...?!
14 Jun, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

When you were growing up, did your school guidance counsellor ever take you aside and say, in that helpful guidance-counsellor-kind-of-way, “you know, kid, you should think about becoming a farmer?” If so, you’re lucky, but you’re also unusual. Farming is one of those few essential occupations that don’t always have a clearly-marked career path, nor is it necessarily encouraged. (Kind...
Chatting with Josh and Sarah of Food First NL
09 Jun, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we take a peek behind the scenes to the world of food policy and food strategy and food insecurity. It is a world of meetings and research and conversation and actions and proposals and collaboration and … did I mention meetings? And we encounter the gymnastics involved in getting food to people at their time of need, and...
The Restaurant Business in the Midst of Covid-19
31 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Remember those days when, at a moment’s notice, we would drop in to a restaurant and check out the cuisine? Without masks and social distancing and without providing a full accounting of our identity and our lifestyle before we were served? Depending on where you live in the world, this may, or may not, be on its way back. But...
Iceland and Food and Covid-19
18 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Certain borders are starting to open up, so this week we return to Iceland on "Fit to Eat." Well, on Zoom anyways. (The internet border didn't close, even though if is often unavailable.) I have often evangelized on the value of comparing approaches to agriculture and food in Iceland and in Newfoundland and Labrador. There is a lot that can...
Speaking of Fish with Kimberly Orren
10 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

When you hear people talk about "local food," does the picture in your head include fish? Why do some folks talk about "fish and food" as if the two are not in the same category? Why don't we have just one basket for food - one that includes figgy duff and fat back and fiddleheads, as well as fish? Today's...
Where's the Beef?
04 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Here's a skill testing question for you: about what percentage of the beef that is eaten in Newfoundland and Labrador comes from the province? What do you think? A quarter? Less? A tenth? More? I don't want to spoil the suspense for you, so for the answer you'll have to listen in to this week's "Fit to Eat: the NL...
At the St. John's Farmer's Market with Pamela
26 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Tom Chapin, the musician, gave a description of Farmer's Markets as follows in one of his songs: "Like a farm once a week, in your neighbourhood; Its Farmer's Market Good!" Indeed, Farmer's Markets aren't just those days when the country comes to the town with lots of glorious produce in tow, but they are also sites of small business development,...
Adam the Lonely Cheesemaker
19 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Have you ever felt that you were alone? Like, the only one in a whole province? A one-person economic sector? This week on "Fit to Eat" we meet the only commercial cow's-milk cheese maker in Newfoundland and Labrador - for almost 10 years running now! I chat with Adam Blanchard of Five Brothers Artisan Cheese about small business, local food,...
How to Pivot down on the farm and at the craft brewery
05 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Pivot. You've likely heard that word quite a bit lately. I remember it from tango dance classes in Argentina (not that I ever really learned how to pivot OR to tango correctly...). But since Covid-19, we hear the word all the time. What does pivot look like on the farm? Or at the craft brewery? Today on "Fit to Eat"...
Farmer Mental Health and Well-Being
30 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

You've seen the idyllic images - of strong farmers, looking over their productive fields and healthy stock, lost in thought, with a piece of straw in their mouth and accomplishment overflowing in their hearts. And these images are sometimes accurate, indeed. But sometimes farming can be stressful, lonely, challenging, unprofitable, and more. This week on "Fit to Eat" I talk...
At the Sheep Barn with Crystal Parsons
21 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food 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...
At the O'Brien Farm with Aaron Rodgers
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" I visit the O'Brien Farm in St. John's, and we head back in time, as well as look forward to the future. Quite the ride. From 1818 to 2020. I talk with Farm Manager Aaron Rodgers about history, heritage, farming, incubators, education, network building, 3-legged stools, a legacy...
At the U-Pick with Andy Wright
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:29:59 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

"We have a bit of a carrot following." "Pumpkin season is a blast." "Everybody thinks that it's easy to grow a strawberry and it's not." If you guessed that this is a farm market u-pick operator speaking, step right up and collect your prize! This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" I speak with Andy...
David Goodyear and his Earth-sheltered greenhouse and homestead
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Which would you choose for your backyard - a snowmobile, or an earth sheltered greenhouse? And which would you guess pays itself off within 5 years? This week we find out the answers to these and other alluring questions on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" as we head to the Homestead at Flatrock. Dan Rubin and...
Visiting Eighth Day Acres - NL's largest (and only) commercial goat cheese dairy.
22 Feb, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

To start the second season of "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" we head to a goat dairy in Cormack, NL. Sometimes when we see a new food product on the shelves, we may have no idea of the years of work (and risk) that went behind making it available. We visit with the folks at Eighth...
The Relatively Recent
11 Feb, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we focus on the relatively recent releases (knowing that delivery times can vary, depending on your address). I have tunes from the five corners of NL, songs of jolly (and untrustworthy) ramblers, demure and sublime ballads of betrayal (as only the British can write), a dandy song about the best song ever...
A season one recap

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

This week on "Fit to Eat," it is the last show of season 1. We'll recap (very briefly), some of the material covered in the 54 shows that came before. You'll hear clips from the 75 people who were interviewed in this season, all jumbled in together. Plus a bit of fun here and there with music and local food...
Olafur talks about agriculture in Iceland, in the age of free traders
04 Dec, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How can a small population, on a large island, protect its food production from diseases and economic aggression in an age of "free" trade? No, I'm not talking about the island of Newfoundland, but the country of Iceland. This week on "Fit to Eat" I speak with a wise farmer and researcher, Ólafur Dýrmundsson, about Iceland's struggles with maintaining clean...
Agriculture University of Iceland
27 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time on "Fit to Eat," we head back to the Agriculture University of Iceland for another show. At every step, we learn how the situation in Newfoundland and Labrador is somewhat similar to that in Iceland - in terms of the challenges around local food production, the need for secondary production, and the crucial imperative to stop importing so...
Using What we Have with Jason Bull and Stelman Flynn
12 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How do farmers decide what to grow? Or gather? One way is to look around you. What does nature do well? Follow that. Today we hear from two food producers who celebrate our natural resources, and work to use what we have. Two voices, of entrepreneurs who are rooted in the values of rural communities, both past and present. I...
