In this episode, I speak with Nathan Allanach with All Family Farm in New York. Nathan has a love for pastured pigs and a love to support fellow veterans. I hope you enjoy the details of his pastured pig operation.
Patreon Support is Requested!
Please consider supporting the podcast (and other efforts - see below) through our NEW Patreon account. If we can garnish enough support, I think we can roll out some great new features for the podcast and beyond.
Below is the transcript of some of the features I am proposing:
In 2021 I want to take the Podcast to the next level and even expand what we are doing with this platform.
All of these interviews have shown me there are great people out there doing great things with pastured pig operations and I want to cast an even bigger light on that.
More interviews - get back to a weekly schedule but it takes people and topics
Expanded the range of Guest - Processors, Big Producers, small homesteads, Veterinarians, Equipment producers
Incorporate additional research in the progress of the pastured pig industry (news updates, etc)
The Pastured Pig website
Repository for the Podcast episodes and notes
Resources for information, products, and data pertaining to the industry
The Pastured Pig Directory!
List Pastured Pig operations by state, breed, products offered, services offered
List Veterinarians who have experience in Pastured Pigs
List AI Sources
List Feed Source by conventional, NonGMO, Organic, Soy Free, etc
Provide landing pages for small farms that can’t justify websites yet (thepasturedpig.com/abcfarm)
Create a social media group focused on these efforts (take nothing away from other great groups)
May be reaching out to some of you to help me
If things really grow, then we are looking at additional features like full podcast transcripts, video/audio tutorials on how to setup and market your farm business, management tips and tricks, and a variety of other great content.
As with everything, these lofty goals require 2 things - time and money
In order to get this ball rolling, we have launched a Patreon account with links in the show notes
The implementation of these features will be based upon support. I want to reinvest your support into the podcast and other features.
We are too niche for me to get big sponsors to pay for all of these ideas and I don’t want to make a 45 minute podcast 1.50 hours due to being filled with ads.
I will make this promise to you. I will not take away from what we have already established. We will still offer great complete interviews on the podcast even if there is zero support.
Your support will help us take this to the next level.
My goal is to see everyone have a chance to be represented on this platform.
Thanks for listening and thanks in advance for your support.
