The Seed Growers Podcast

May 18, 2022

Today, Annie Jesperson and Nathaniel Talbot of Deep Harvest Farm tell us about running both a veg CSA and seed company on Whidbey Island, outside of Seattle Washington. They get into their exposure to growing seed at The Organic Farm School, a letterbox campaign to find land, early seed growing/selling experience, running a seed company vs growing on contract, how they navigate seed/veg on the same farm, how the two compliment one another in workload and cashflow, and they break down growing beets from seed to seed.
