Introducing Back Road Journeys on Edible Radio, a series of 13 radio podcasts exploring the rich local food heritage of the Appalachian Region. Appalachia is filled with innovative farmers and food entrepreneurs who are deeply connected to the history and traditions of the land they cultivate and the place they call home. Join us each month for a new podcast with an exciting guest from the region to learn and be inspired by their journey creating a successful, original food and farming business in the heart of America. Hosted by Tricia Wheeler, Publisher of Edible Columbus and owner of The Seasoned Farmhouse Cooking School, Back Road Journeys offers authentic and delicious stories for the soul.
Meet our first guest, Natasha McCrary of 1818 Farms located in historic Mooresville, Alabama. Natasha and her family have transformed her 3-acre family farm into a multifaceted year round sustainable farming and homesteading business. From raising sheep and growing heirloom flowers and vegetables, to farm dinners, educational camps and a quickly growing line of bath products, this entrepreneurial family is full of heart and good advice. Listen in!
