    Description: In Episode 24 we visit with Jeanne Johnson at Juniper Edge Farm in Brunswick. She is a single woman, completely organic vegetable operation. She has made a conscious decision not to buy into the hype of organic certification, and instead wants to go it on her own. She feels that certification organizations like MOFGA are being put in a position where they are forced to discriminate against small organic operations. Listen in to get the perspective from the other side of organic operations.

    Episode 23: John Piotti

    The Forever Farms Podcast focuses on the stories of farmers who work land that has been protected by agricultural easements, yet we rarely talk about why this form of protection takes place. In Episode 23 we meet with John Piotti, president of the Maine Farmland Trust. He talks about why Farmland Protection is necessary (for now), and the challenges we as a society need to address in our relationship with the food system to survive as a species.
