Episode 256. Organic Pioneer Michael O’Gorman on Vegetable Production for Profitability, Part 2

This episode of Voices from the Field is the second part of a conversation between NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Mike Lewis and Michael O’ Gorman, an organic farming pioneer and founder of the Farmer Veteran Coalition.

Mike and Michael talk about mitigating risk, in tomato crops in particular and agricultural operations in general. Michael also describes why he thinks the current high price of fuel and its effect on transportation costs may help new, locally oriented farmers get into the business.
