Episode 163. Farming Medicinal Plants

In this episode, Devona Bell, NCAT’s Director of Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Communities, has a conversation with Maya and Ed Skopal.

Maya and Ed own I-TAL ACRES, a medicinal plant farm and apothecary in Floyd County, Virginia. The Skopals discuss their philosophy of medicinal plants, some of the plants they grow and the methods they use to grow them, how the medicinal plants are processed into products, and I-TAL ACRES’ business philosophy.
