What listeners are saying…


Just one episode changed our business life!

“Our small farm needs help on the office side of the business. The office side is non existent. So I searched “small farm” in the podcast app and your podcast was recommended. And just the day before you posted an interview with Emma Hendel. I listened to that podcast and it scratched in so many places I was itching!!! Thank you for the guidance in the specific area of the office side of the farm. Emma said so much on exactly how I feel. Please continue to share quality information in this important side of farming.”

Amateur or Professional…

“Just wanted to say Diego, that I have really appreciated your podcast. I’m new to the small farm approach, looking to invest next year, and these programs have been wonderful! Some of them I have listened to over and over! – and I so very much appreciate that while you do advertise, your program is still education based. There is a phenomenal amount of information in your podcasts! Thank you! Please don’t stop anytime soon!!”
