Farming on the frontlines of climate change ~ #grist

In this episode of Slow Ride Stories , Erik and Albert visit Cranberry Hill Farm in Ashford, Conn., where proprietor Art Talmadge talks about his business growing heirloom veggies and heritage breed chickens for sale at local farmers markets. Talmadge says he and his fellow farmers deal with climate change every day, but they don’t often talk about it. Erik Fyfe and Albert Thrower are traveling across the Northeast by motorcycle, talking with a wide range of people about their perceptions of climate change and experiences with extreme weather. Their aim is to spark conversations about the changing climate and collect local stories about how it may impact everyday Americans. Find all of the Slow Ride Stories here .
