Puede encontrar una transcripción en español de este episodio AQUÍ

Not many people get into farming for the money. But that doesn’t mean money isn’t important on a farm. Finances are the root cause of a lot of farmer stress. From high up-front costs to fluctuating commodity prices and declining farm income, the worries are real. But there are also plenty of funds and fundamentals that can help you gain control of your money and alleviate the mental burden of financial anxiety.

In this episode, we talk to Valerie Woodhouse, social worker and owner and operator of Honey Field Farms in Norwich Vermont, on her own financial journey and how she addresses stress in her farming clients. You’ll also hear from university educators Maria Pippidis (University of Delaware- Cooperative Extension) and Jesse Ketterman (University of Maryland-Extension) on the essentials building blocks of healthy finances. 

Join us as we explore the green that doesn’t grow on trees: how to get it, how to hold onto it, and how to keep it from dominating your day-to-day.
