At the Homestead in Flat Rock
21 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Broad social changes, including enhancements in food production, take root at the individual and household level. That is what matters in the end. Waving banners and marching and chanting slogans and wearing T-shirts and applying bumper stickers is fun and all. Trust me. But to make a social movement “stick,” it has to be something that prompts changes at the...
At the Farmer's Market with Susan Lester
21 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

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...
Urban Agriculture in Canada's Most Populous City
20 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

As regular listeners know, although “Fit to Eat” is focussed on food and agriculture in Newfoundland and Labrador, the show does travel from time to time. This episode we head to Ontario (just like so many of our province’s population over the years), But just temporarily. Today we talk about Urban Agriculture. And what better place to discuss that than...
When Waste is Not
18 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

What is waste? Well, that depends. If you use the word as an adjective or a noun, it may mean a material that is discarded as no longer useful, given the current levels of imagination and technology. However, as a verb, waste can mean “to use or expend carelessly.” As in, “we are wasting 60 percent of a cod fish.”...

Notes from Rural Iceland
11 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on "Fit to Eat" we head to Iceland for a couple of chats, just to see how things related to food and agriculture, and rural in general, are going there since Covid rearranged many of our plans. We meet up with Dóróthea Ármann of Friðheimar, where they produce tomatoes, cucumbers and fine horses, and operate a very popular restaurant...
Heading to the Big Land to talk Food
04 Jul, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Labrador. The Big Land. The 3rd word in the official title of this province, even though its territory constitutes over 70% of the land mass of said province. The name “Labrador” was bestowed by a Portuguese explorer, João Fernandes Lavrador. Lavrador in Portuguese means “farmer” or “labourer.” So it makes sense that on today’s show, we head to central Labrador,...

Food Security and Beyond
01 Jul, 2022 | 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...
On the stage with Kimberly (the fishing stage, that is)
20 Jun, 2022 | 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...
Talking Beef with Nelson Fagan
16 Jun, 2022 | 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...
Talking about Farmer Mental Health
11 Jun, 2022 | 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...
Down at the Sheep Barn
04 Jun, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

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...
At the O'Brien Farm with Aaron Rodgers
26 May, 2022 | 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...
Chatting about food in the North with the Arctic Chicken Lady, part 2
18 May, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How often do communities try to recruit new residents, professionals and otherwise, by talking about sports or recreation or civic infrastructure or how close it is to an airport (so you can escape). But rarely, do they talk about local food access. In these days of climate challenge and supply chain weakening, maybe expecting to continue to survive at the...
Chatting about food in the North with the Arctic Chicken Lady
10 May, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

As a species, over the past couple hundred thousand years, we – homo sapiens – ended up occupying an amazing range of territories and ecosystems. It is said that we have been able to adapt to living in a broader assortment of locations than any other species. And in all of these settings, from arid deserts to arctic tundra to...

Today on "Fit to Eat" we are in the Functional Foods lab of Grenfell Campus of Memorial University in Corner Brook. It is a place that tries to ensure that nutritious foods find a place in our food system. The idea is to get products to market, food products with good taste, enticing smell, a pleasant texture, and that look...
A Snowmobile or a Sheltered Greenhouse? You Choose.
27 Apr, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Innovation. It’s a word that permeates our culture these days, even if it seems to be thin on the ground sometimes. We are often tricked into thinking of innovation as occurring only in busy but sterile laboratories or cluttered, coffee-fueled computer dens, or at that new complex up on the highway that was opened with great fanfare and the cutting...
At the Nourish and Develop Foundation, part 2
19 Apr, 2022 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Folktales are full of stories that include details about magical objects – wands, amulets, combs, stones, boots, dust, mirrors, special fabrics. So when I quote one of my guests today, you may think it sounds rather fanciful. But like the most enduring of folktales, there is lots of wisdom behind it. You’ll hear it in a moment, but she said...
At the Nourish and Develop Foundation, part 1

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

You’ve likely heard the saying, “it takes a whole village to raise a child.” It is a proverb found in several African cultures. On today’s program, we suggest that maybe it takes a whole village to feed and take care of all of its residents – or something like that. Next up, we visit one such a village. Some time...
