In April 2021, we will be introducing podcast episodes for our Patreon members that take a deeper dive into specific topics. Our first series is on how to market your farm effectively.

If we can garnish enough support, I think we can roll out some great new features for the podcast and beyond.

Podcast Improvements:

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)

 

Beyond Podcast:

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)

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.

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.

https://www.patreon.com/thepasturedpig

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.

 

Podcast Improvements:

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

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.
