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

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...

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.

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.

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...

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...

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...
Agriculture and Rural Development (in Iceland and Beyond)
05 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Building a diverse food production system is just about the best rural development strategy possible. And vice versa. Today on "Fit to Eat," we test out that theory in Iceland, with teacher, researcher and rural development worker, Vifill Karlsson. We talk about attracting young farmers, enticing agri-tourists (and keeping them safe), supporting local production, the awkward urban-rural balance, and the...
Citizen Action with Katie Temple
30 Oct, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

All across our province, and beyond, there are people who are playing their role, growing more food of their own this year than they did last year, learning to be more conscious about buying local produce, and developing a new relationship to the earth. Call me incorrigibly-positive, but it is happening. Today on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and...
Two Gentlemen of Labrador
22 Oct, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

What keeps us from growing more food - when we know that we can? Why is there sometimes a gap between the potential of our land and the actual food production that takes place? Is the commitment to eat local food harder to grow than the food itself? This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show,"...

This week on "Fit to Eat" we head to the north of Iceland, to talk with Ingvi Stefansson, a pig farmer who takes great pride in his pigs, as well as in the fine reputation of his tourist cottage (which is less than a stone's throw from his pig barn). He speaks about the challenges of international competition in the...

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

What IS a Farmer's Market anyways? And what are the elements that go into a great market experience. This week on "Fit to Eat" I talk to Danilo Gonzalez, who grew up around farmers' markets, has organized farmers' markets, and is now working on a new model to bring producers and consumers together, called the Market Family. We talk about...
Promoting agriculture to help urban areas prosper
23 Sep, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

There have been lots of stories over the past few years of towns and cities that fight to restrict food production within their boundaries. This is a bit of a different story. Today on "Fit to Eat" I visit with Tom Rose, the mayor of Stephenville, who thinks that municipalities need to do more to encourage local food production, not...
Food Entrepreneurs

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

This week on "Fit to Eat" I talk to two folks about food retailing and secondary production. We meet with Kelly Mansell, of the Rocket Bakery and Fresh Foods in St. John's - a place that not only sells fine food and baked goods and dandy coffee, but prides itself on being "love central" in downtown St. John's. I also...
